Southern Research Is a National Leader in Fighting Cancer
June 26, 2015
We’ve developed seven cancer drugs – rivaling any other scientific research organization in the country.
Each year, more than 1.6 million people in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer. It’s a diagnosis that affects the patient, their family and friends.
Southern Research has developed seven FDA-approved cancer drugs that bring new hope to patients and their loved ones. The drugs we’ve developed help patients take on some of the toughest cancers, and even help them cope with cancer treatment.
The first drug approved as a treatment for patients with relapsed or refractory peripheral T-cell lymphoma, or PTCL – a group of aggressive blood cancers.
The first drug to be approved for treatment of pediatric leukemia in more than a decade.
