Research by ACE members, Carlo Maley and Athena Aktipis, is the focus of a story in the Wall Street Journal. The article describes how adaptive therapy (not attempting to wipe out all cancer cells but to hold them at bay) is about to be trialed on metastatic breast cancer patients in Arizona. The technique is presently being used in Florida by close collaborators of ACE who are treating patients with late stage prostate cancer. The hope is that if the treatment works, and the early signs in the Florida trial show promise, adaptive therapy may one day turn incurable cancers into chronic diseases that people can live with.
