IBM Research Scientists Investigate Use of Cognitive Computing-Based Visual Analytics for Skin Cancer Image Analysis with Memorial Sloan Kettering

IBM announced a collaboration with Memorial Sloan Kettering to research the application of cognitive computing to analyze dermatological images of skin lesions with the goal of assisting clinicians in the identification of various cancerous disease states. The technology, which learns by identifying specific patterns in medical images, has the potential to increase the number of cases detected and help clinicians make earlier diagnoses. The automated analysis of skin imaging is one area of research that is currently being investigated by IBM Research, in conjunction with a larger international effort being led by Memorial Sloan Kettering.

Atara Biotherapeutics Enters into Immunotherapy Alliance with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to Develop and Commercialize Allogeneic T-cell Therapies

Atara Biotherapeutics has entered into an exclusive option agreement with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to develop and commercialize allogeneic T-cell therapies to treat certain cancers and persistent viral infections. As part of the deal, Atara will have the option to acquire a worldwide license to three clinical stage T-cell therapies. These therapies include T-cells activated against Epstein Barr Virus, or EBV (Phase 2); T-cells activated against cytomegalovirus, or CMV (Phase 2); and T-cells activated against Wilms Tumor 1, or WT1 (Phase 1). These three programs share a common technology under which third-party donor-derived whole blood is collected and enriched for T lymphocytes (T-cells), which are then exposed to certain antigens, and the resulting activated T-cells are characterized and stored for future therapeutic use. Under the deal, MSK will receive cash and Atara common stock in return for the exclusive option. In case Atara exercises its option to enter into the license deal, MSK will receive an upfront license payment and will be eligible to secure additional payments based on achievement of certain development, regulatory and sales-related milestones as well as royalty payments. Both the firms have agreed to collaborate on further research to develop additional cellular therapies, which may include T-cell therapies against other antigens and/or chimeric antigen receptor-modified T-cells, known as CAR-T.
