Scancell taps lung cancer nonprofit to accelerate trial

U.K. biotech Scancell has joined forces with the Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute (ALCMI) and Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (ALCF) to make sure that its planned phase 1/2 trial of immunotherapy SCIB2—due to start next year—recruits patients as quickly as possible.  The deal means it can tap into ALCMI's international network of clinical investigator sites as well as ALCF's patient support programs to find suitable trial candidates—which should allow it to take the trial from start to finish in 18 months, says the biotech.
