CAMBRIDGE, MA, September 15, 2016 -- Aurora BioPharma, Inc., CEO, Robert Brooks, will present at the Aegis Capital Corp. 2016 Growth Investment Conference taking place at the Encore at Wynn Las Vegas September 20-22.
Aurora BioPharma is a biotechnology company, revolutionizing the way we will treat cancer in the future. After 50 years of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, cancer rates are still expected to double in the next 15 years. Medicine has a new weapon, genetically reprogramming the immune system into an elite killer army. Already three companies involved in genetically engineered Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T therapy, have been awarded Breakthrough Therapy Designation by the FDA for showing up to 90% remissions or nearly a "cure" in leukemia and other liquid tumors. Aurora has shown in a human Phase I/II trial with Glioblastoma, the most lethal brain cancer, nearly double the survival of a $1 Billion drug without the side effects. Glioblastoma claimed the lives of Senator Ted Kennedy and Vice President Biden's son, and many others.
