Cancer is one of those diseases which affect not only the patient but also their loved ones. When diagnosed with cancer, most patients see it as a death sentence from the beginning. The truth is that there are cures for different types of cancer. There are various treatment methods available and there are certain researchers and scientists who are still doing research to come up with even better and more effective treatment options.
When you have cancer, the doctors will start you on a treatment plan. Most of the time, the treatment involves the use of chemotherapy to kill the cancer cells. The treatment usually affects both the cancerous cells as well as the healthy ones. However, there is a company which has noticed this and has come up with a method of ensuring that only the cells with cancer are killed. The cells which are unaffected by cancer can be left alone to thrive.
Seattle Genetics is a company known in the biotechnology industry as a manufacturer and maker of innovative treatment technologies and products. They have come up with an innovative solution to this problem. This is in the form of a treatment known as ADC which actually means Anti-body Drug Conjugate. The technology sees to it that only cancerous cells are killed in the body.
The CEO and founder of Seattle Genetics is a reputed individual known as Clay Siegall. He founded the company in 1998 and he led it to where it is now.
