Los Angeles, CA – August 1, 2017 – Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® announces an exclusive interview with Daniel J. O’Connor, CEO, President and Director of Advaxis, a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing cancer immunotherapies that enlist the body’s own immune system to fight cancer.
“Unfortunately, virtually all of us will either experience cancer in our lifetime or love someone who has fought cancer,” says O’Connor. In this groundbreaking interview, he will share the immunotherapies his company has created through technology. These therapies were developed as a way to teach our bodies to fight the terrible disease of cancer.
The team at Advaxis believes that everyone has within their own bodies the ability to fight the disease of cancer. The technology Advaxis engineered is designed to teach our bodies how to do just that. This company is altering the way physicians and patients think about cancer.
“We lose the battle overtime. There are features that can contribute to the development of cancer, environmental factors, and genetic predisposition. Eventually, our immunity wears away. Our technology at Advaxis teaches our immunity to work properly once again. Our goal is to give patients and doctors other treatment options besides chemotherapy and radiation, which are currently the most common treatments for the disease.” Adds O’Connor.
The immunotherapies are designed to capitalize on the body’s ability to recognize and attack bacterial infections. Right now, there are three immunotherapies in development at Advaxis:
- Axalimogene filolisbac: for use in HPV-associated cancers
- ADXS-PSA: for use in prostate cancer.
- ADXS-HER2 in HER2: for use in solid tumors, like those in osteosarcoma, breast cancer, esophageal and gastric cancers.
