When it comes to cancer research, everyone seems to be trying to cash in. Unfortunately this is the nature of the business for most companies. For other’s, cashing in is more of an afterthought as a person’s life is much more valuable than money. There have been numerous cancer medications, treatments, and therapies throughout the years, but none of them has given the world a definitive answer to the disease itself. When money begins to override your values, advancements seem to come to a screeching halt. Fortunately there is one company/organization that is willing to put people over profits. Seattle Genetics is the name and eradicating cancer is the game. This Bothell, Washington based company specializes in developing and commercializing antibody based therapies (aka) cancer killers and this is how.
These therapies are far advanced than treatments in the past. The main weapon of choice are antibody drug conjugates and they are far more efficient in their actions when being compared to earlier treatments. These therapies are innovative as they tend to deliver cell killing agents directly into cancerous cells. While this is happening, other non-targeted cells are spared. Unlike Chemotherapy which actually kills good cells within the body, (ADCs) leave no nasty side effects and the huge plus because the side effects can make the patient feel just as worse as the cancer itself. Seattle Genetics stand out in the crowd thanks to it’s leadership and this leadership is what’s spearheading the advance in the fight against cancer.
Dr. Clay Siegall is the chief here literally. He actually the CEO and President of the company who has a large knowledge base for cancer research. Dr. Siegall is the go to guy in this industry and he demonstrates from his successful body of work. Since it’s birth, Seattle Genetics has grown dramatically throughout the years and introduced some of the most innovated and advanced cancer therapies. The accomplished doctor is looking to take the company even further as it has numerous drugs already being tested in it’s pipeline. Dr. Clay Siegall truly epitomizes passion, progression, and persistence.
