Investors had been closely watching the fortunes of CAR-T developers, including Kite Pharma Inc and Bluebird Bio Inc.

The number of studies receiving full funding by the NIH at the yearly meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) has fallen 75 percent in the past ten years, from 575 papers in 2008 to 144 in 2017 according to the society.

The treatment, called CAR-T therapy, involves filtering a patient's blood to remove immune system soldiers called T cells.

A rating of less than 2 means buy, "hold" within the 3 range, "sell" within the 4 range, and "strong sell" within the 5 range. Picking the next victor to bolster the portfolio may involve some hard work and a little bit of stock market magic.

New research from The University of Texas at Austin identifies several natural compounds found in food, including turmeric, apple peels and red grapes, as key ingredients that could thwart the growth of prostate cancer, the most common cancer afflicting US men and a key area of focus during Men's Health Month, which public health advocates celebrate in June.

CAR-Ts can also pose serious risks, including a potentially life-threatening inflammatory condition, though researchers said at ASCO they have become more confident in managing though side effects.

Nick Leschly, Bluebird's chief executive, said the next phase of his company's study will test what seems the ideal dose in 20 more people.

During the trial, half of the men were treated with hormone therapy while the other half received hormone therapy and Abiraterone.

She was again unable to back it up and Bacsinszky took the next four games to stretch to what proved to be a crucial 5-3 lead. She said: "The magic has been happening for me here always - even the first time I came here as a little kid".

Markus Weber, General Manager, Astellas MENA/SSA (Middle East, North Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa) commented: "We are pleased to be at the forefront of research in the field of oncology and proud to be able to expand the available treatment options to patients". Shares of Bluebird are up 17 percent so far this week. It also prevents patients becoming obese, as fat tissue produces hormones that stimulate tumour growth. Gleason 8-10 disease with PSA ≤2.5 ng/mL had a much higher risk of PCSM than standard NCCN high-risk disease (AHR 1.92, 95%CI 1.18-3.14; 47-month PCSM 14.0% vs. 10.5%).

Interactive tools may prove more beneficial to patients making treatment decisions than states information. "Abiraterone can clearly help many more prostate cancer patients than was first thought".

Juno Therapeutics Inc scrapped its initial CAR-T candidate for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) after five patient deaths.

Although the trial was not created to see if this drug extended the lifespan of cancer patients, the results are still making a splash in the science community. Nurses took immediate clinical actions more than three-quarters of the time when patients reported severe or worsening symptoms.

Skipper Kohli calls for improvement in fielding
Mohammad Aamir provided rare moments of respite amid the India run-spree with a return of none for 32 in 8.1 overs. Kohli , who had struggled throughout for timing, suddenly looked marvellous.

Two new studies presented at the world's biggest cancer conference show that exercise could be a powerful tool, helping to slow down the disease and cut the risk of death. And that could very well lead to even more consolidation in the oncology sphere, biotech investor and immuno-oncology fund manager Brad Loncar tells Fortune in an interview.
