FREDERICK, Md. -- It has been used in clinical studies on four continents and has been tested in thousands of volunteers. It was produced at the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research over a five-year span to meet increasing clinical demand, and it may play an ongoing role in the future of HIV research.
"It’s a harsh truth that half of the men and a third of the women in America will be diagnosed with cancer during their lives. We must improve these statistics, especially now as our nation is aging and cancer disproportionately strikes older people. As a result, cancer cases will increase unless we find ways to stem this tide."
