Microbiome Effects in Metastatic Tumor Progression

Share Article

MD Biosciences’ recent microbiome-related studies have focused on animal vendor differences in the microbiome to identify any related impact in immunological and cellular functions.

Our research hopes to contribute to Microbiome understandings and its intricate relationship to therapeutic progress.

MD Biosciences, a leading global provider of advanced research for life science products, clinical diagnostic assays and compound pipelines, today announced its presence at the 4th annual Immuno-Oncology Summit, #booth 17, at the Marriott Long Wharf, Boston, MA - Aug. 29 – Sept. 2, 2016.

Britnie James, Ph.D., Director of the MD Biosciences Immunology Laboratories will present recent data on the impact of different animal supply and the microbiome in tumor progression and treatment studies. “Understanding the Impact of Animal Vendors and the Microbiome - in Tumor Progression and Treatment - in a Model of Metastatic Breast Cancer” will be presented at 10:00 am Wed., August 31.

MD Biosciences’ recent microbiome-related studies focused on animal vendor differences in the microbiome to identify any related impact in immunological and cellular functions. “We have examined whether  animals from different vendors, with discrete microbiomes, would  present with different disease progression and therapy responses in a  murine model of metastatic breast cancer,” said Britnie James. “I will be  presenting these research findings at the Immuno-Oncology Summit.”

According to Eddie Moradian, PhD, Chief Executive of MD Biosciences, “The impact of the microbiome on disease and therapy progression is becoming more evident. The microbiome may play an important role in the preclinical setting and possibly in the clinical settings as well. We hope to contribute to the understanding of the microbiome and its intricate relation to therapeutic progress with our research.”
