We Put Patients First

We’d like to express our appreciation for the patients who participate in our clinical trials. Your contributions will help our efforts to treat and cure cancer.

Advanced Merkel Cell Carcinoma (MCC)

Advanced Merkel Cell Carcinoma is an aggressive, rare neuroendocrine tumor of the skin. It has a high frequency of locoregional recurrence and metastasis, and a high mortality rate. Approximately 45%-50% of patients have primary resistance to the current standard of care, first line pembrolizumab.1

MCC has an incidence rate of approximately 2,500 people per year and it is expected to increase by 30% by 2025.2

Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL)

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma is an aggressive form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma that affects B-lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are a type of white blood cell that make antibodies to fight infections and are an important part of the lymphatic system. DLBCL makes up about 30% of all lymphomas and affects about 7 out of every 100,000 people each year.1

Myelodysplasia Syndrome (MDS)

Myelodysplastic syndromes are conditions that can occur when the blood-forming cells in the bone marrow become abnormal. This leads to low numbers of one or more types of blood cells. Approximately 15,000 to 20,000 people are diagnosed with MDS in the United States each year.1

Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)

Adult acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a type of cancer in which the bone marrow makes a large number of abnormal blood cells. It can affect red and white blood cells and platelets. AML is one of the most common types of leukemia in adults with approximately 20,000 people diagnosed each year.1
