In BIG news, the research team we have been working with at Stanford announced what will hopefully turn into a MAJOR scientific breakthrough in treating DIPG … and they did it, in part, using Nate’s cell lines! How crazy is that!? In short, using immunotherapy (engineered immune cells), they are now able to virtually eliminate DIPG tumors in models. See the attached article. Truly an amazing leap forward!

The research paper with their findings was recently published in Nature Medicine. The N8 Foundation even got a nod at the end of the paper as a partial sponsor. Thank you Dr. Monje and team!
The team at Stanford is currently working to start the first human trial in the next few months, hopefully by the first part of this next year (2019). We are certainly hopeful that this new breakthrough translates into an effective human treatment … Dr. Monje, you and your team are amazing! Thank you again!!!
