Prof Bradley Monk – University of California Irvine, USA

Speaking on denosumab, the first active, targeted agent in epithelial ovarian cancer, Prof Bradley Monk meets with ecancertv at the Chemotherapy Foundation Symposium in New York City.

Prof Monk also discusses other active angiogenesis molecules that target pathways such as VEGF trap, which is a FC fusion molecule, AMG 386 and multiple anti angiogenesis molecules in phase III studies. 

Other new targets in development are folate receptors, which allow for the targeting of specific ovarian cancer cells and stimulate an immune response.  These receptors are currently in phase II studies.  Lastly, Prof Monk mentions EC 145, a vitamin that is administered in conjunction with chemotherapy, PARP inhibitors, and continuing research cytotoxics.
