Philips HealthWorks Startup Program
Massive Bio and Philips Journey, Marching to Equalize Access in Healthcare by Combining Best Minds

2018 has been a revolutionary year for Massive Bio and clearly acceptance by Philips HealthWorks is an important milestone. 
Massive Bio was selected from the less than one dozen participants of an applicant base of over 200 start-ups to the Philips HealthWorks Startup Program running in Cambridge, MA focused on Precision Oncology. The program, which began in February and runs for 12 weeks, has us engaged in an intensive learning cycle with Philips, providing us with unparalleled access to experts from across their business. Massive Bio successfully graduated from the program in May 2018 and is currently exploring strategic collaboration opportunities with Philips.

Cancer-fighting scanner to be unveiled

A new high technology piece cancer fighting equipment, funded by the display of some artfully decorated bras, will be unveiled to the public this week.


Spread of pancreatic cancer to the liver or lungs depends on plasticity of tumor cells

Pancreatic cancer often spreads, forming metastases in the liver or lungs. The prognosis is better for patients with metastases in the lungs. However, the organ that is more likely to be affected depends on the cancer cells' ability to alter their characteristics and shape - as a research team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has discovered

Cancer researchers suggest new treatment for rare inherited cancers

Studying two rare inherited cancer syndromes, scientists have found the cancers are driven by a breakdown in how cells repair their DNA. The discovery suggests a promising strategy for treatment with drugs recently approved for other forms of cancer, said the researchers.

Weight loss surgery may decrease hormone-related cancer risk, study says

Researchers report that along with sharp decreases in hormone-related cancers, the risk for colorectal cancer increased by more than twofold.




Diagnosis and management of pulmonary toxicity associated with cancer immunotherapy

Pulmonary toxicity of cancer immunotherapies has emerged as an important clinical event that requires prompt identification and management. Although often referred to as pneumonitis, pulmonary toxicity associated with immunotherapy covers a broad and overlapping spectrum of pulmonary manifestations, and, once suspected, the range of differential diagnoses of infectious and neoplastic processes might make the diagnostic process challenging for physicians.

Prognostic value of microRNAs in colorectal cancer: a meta-analysis

Numerous studies have shown that miRNA levels are closely related to the survival time of patients with colon, rectal, or colorectal cancer (CRC). However, the outcomes of different investigations have been inconsistent. Accordingly, a meta-analysis was conducted to study associations among the three types of cancers.

Harnessing the Perioperative Period to Improve Long-term Cancer Outcomes

The short perioperative period, spanning several days pre- and postsurgery, is now believed to have a nonproportionally large impact on long-term cancer outcomes (1,2). Numerous physiological responses to the newly discovered cancer and to surgical resection trigger pro-metastatic processes that can affect minimal residual disease (MRD; single tumor cells/micrometastases).

Portraits of genetic intra-tumour heterogeneity and subclonal selection across cancer types

Continued evolution in cancers gives rise to intra-tumour heterogeneity (ITH), which is a major mechanism of therapeutic resistance and therefore an important clinical challenge. However, the extent, origin and drivers of ITH across cancer types are poorly understood. Here, we extensively characterise ITH across 2,778 cancer whole genome sequences from 36 cancer types.
