Cancer is one of the world’s primary medical problems today. At least one life in every family is lost to cancer. Various medical programs have been established seeking the cure for cancer. Although cancer is treatable at an early stage, the world still hopes to find a cure to save lives. Joe Biden’s visit to Seattle Genetics gave Puget Sound, cancer research company fame in the country. Seattle Genetics, the Bothell- based company is focused on enlarging its capacity for drug production. The Seattle cancer research center is trying out its new commercialized drug for cancer, Adcetris, in major cancer centers. Having been tested in more than fifty cancer research centers, Adcetris is hopefully the cure for lymphomas and other types of cancer.
Seattle Genetics is conducting a three-phase drug test on Adcetris, with the hope of curing the untreated cases of Hodgkin lymphoma. According to Siegall, the Hodgkin lymphoma test is the biggest trial test with the most significant impact on the company.
Seattle Genetics is a US based biotechnology company committed to developing, and implementing new innovative therapies and tests for cancer treatment.
