The Currently Incurable Scientist: The Future of anti-EGFR Therapy?

For readers interested in “the science” of current & potential future CRC treatments – my latest monthly column of The Currently Incurable Scientist has been published on the Fight Colorectal Cancer website.  This month’s installment is called “The Future of anti-EGFR Therapy?

Similar to last month’s column, it is a 2-parter.  The first part describes how current anti-EGFR therapies work in the treatment of CRC.  The second part discusses two example clinical trials testing next generation anti-EGFR therapeutic strategies for CRC.  Long time readers will recognize that both subjects were partially (but not totally) discussed in a different format here last Spring!

This was an interesting topic in particular for me to write about since I am currently undergoing anti-EGFR therapy myself!  A truly complete melding of my roles as a patient-scientist-advocate.  As a patient I take the anti-EGFR therapeutic antibody Erbitux.  As a scientist, I can explain its anti-cancer activity.  As an advocate, I utilize the Fight Colorectal Cancer advocacy platform to educate fellow patients how it works & potential future treatment options.

Are you dizzy yet?  I think I am. But I hope you enjoy the column anyways. 😉
