What researchers are saying...

“Several approaches have been tested to improve the anti-tumor activity of cytotoxins and immunotoxins and to decrease toxicity and immunogenicity of these agents.”... “In our current study, we utilized a device for continuous infusion (ALZET pump) of drug as an alternate approach to increase the availability of drug. This approach resulted in improved anti-tumor effect and decreased toxic effects.” “Utilizing this device, IL-13 cytotoxin can be continuously administered systemically in body.” Kawakami et al., Molecular Medicine 2002;8(8):487-494.
