Combination therapy for aggressive brain tumor patients

Updated: 11 April 2019

The approval process duration of effectively developed cancer therapies in other countries such as the United States has been reduced in China after the recent regulatory changes. This can help in bringing the lifesaving cancer treatment to patients at a much faster rate.

Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) has collaborated with the Chinese Thoracic Oncology Group (CTONG) followed by this regulation. CTONG has more than 20 cancer centers in China, where subjects from China and the United States can enroll themselves for clinical trials. The primary goal for this collaboration is to conduct clinical trials for lung cancer, which is the major cause of death in both countries. Telemedicine is the other distinctive aspect of this collaboration. To gain policy advisory support, MSK and CTONG have taken the assistance from leaders of US FDA, China National Medical Products Administration, Australian Lung Cancer Trials Group and New York based Asia Society Policy Institute.
