Q&A with Annick Desjardins: Using Polio to Kill Cancer
When neurologist Annick Desjardins first heard about an experimental therapy that uses the polio virus to attack cancer cells, she admittedly thought it was an off-the-wall idea. In the 12 years since then, however, Desjardins-now associate professor of neurology at the Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina, which is hosting the study-has seen remarkable results. The CBS show 60 Minutes even described the treatment, a form of immunotherapy, as potentially a "big leap forward. In advance of her keynote address at the 2015 ASTC Annual Conference in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, this October, Desjardins spoke with Dimensions about scientific breakthroughs and how to share them with the public.

"These early results are intriguing," said Annick Desjardins, M.D., FRCPC, principal investigator and associate professor of medicine at Duke University School of Medicine.
"Current therapies for glioblastoma are limited because they cannot cross the blood-brain barrier and often do not specifically attack the tumor. This treatment appears to overcome those problems. We are eager to see additional results as we move forward with our study." In addition to Desjardins, study authors include J. H. Sampson, K.B. Peters, T. Ranjan, G. Vlahovic, S. Threatt, J.E. Herndon II, A. Friedman, H.S. Friedman, D.D. Bigner and M. Gromeier.
