Together with @ActiniumPharma we'll study how their Actimab-A targeted radiotherapy works in combination with RRx-001 and determine the potential to improve patient outcomes. Learn more about the partnership here:

The @UofAlabama research team, using mouse models of melanoma cells implanted subcutaneously, found that a large number of T-reg cells that infiltrated into the tumors expressed the transcription factor Blimp1, as compared to T-reg cells in the spleen.
