Herceptin Inventors, Immunology Pioneers Take Home 2019 Lasker Awards

5 monthes ago   |   By Xconomy

This year's Lasker Awards, the US's most prestigious biomedical honor, are going to five scientists whose work led to a critical breast cancer treatment and significant basic research advances that have helped pave the way for immunotherapy. H. Michael Shepard, Dennis Slamon, and Axel Ullrich won the Lasker-DeBakey Clinical Medical Research Award for inventing trastuzumab , the Genentech antibody drug for HER2-positive breast cancer, a form of the disease that afflicts more than 50,000 women each year. Herceptin is the first monoclonal antibody to target a cancer-causing protein-HER2...
