Cancer is one of the most researched diseases in the world, and it is also one of the more lethal ones that the humankind has ever faced in the history. The fact that cancer is a cell from the user’s own body makes it very hard for medicine to find a cure, but researchers are developing therapies and treatments that weren’t even imagined a decade ago. Medicine is moving fast.
This fast pacing and the amount of discoveries that are helping combat the effects of cancer are thanks to scientists and innovators like Clay Siegall, the Chief Executive Officer of a company named Seattle Genetics.
Seattle Genetics has been promoting researches for many years to combat cancer, and that has become evident by their growing role in the fight against the disease. With biomedical studies being conducted and a staff of hundreds of scientists being put together in teams to develop theories in different fronts, Seattle Genetics is one of the most spoken-about companies in the medicine world.
Having graduated from the George Washington University where the doctor received his Ph.D., the Genetics specialist Clay Siegall has made dozens of accomplishments in the battle against cancer that have shaken the entire world.
Under the leadership of Siegall, his company has pioneered the development of the first-ever made antibody-drug conjugates, mainly ADCETRIS which became the most popular ones and had its approval from FDA in 2011.
ADCETRIS is one of the most impactful antibody-drugs in the world, as it is used to combat the effects of cancer and it has already been implemented legally by more than fifty countries around the world, as well as being employed in hundreds of treatments because of its effectiveness and performance.
Clay Siegall, as the CEO of Seattle Genetics, continues to develop new remedies and treatments with the primary purpose of finding a cure for cancer or helping humankind combat it with the most efficient solutions. The entrepreneur has a big focus on the search for ways of treating this disease that have the least harmful effects and won’t hinder the life of the patient.
As it stands, Clay Siegall is one of the most influential scientists in the medicine world.
