Phase 1 Study of CK-301 as a Single Agent in Subjects With Advanced Cancers

Purpose CK-301 is a fully human monoclonal antibody of IgG1 subtype that directly binds to Programmed Death-Ligand 1 (PD-L1) and blocks its interactions with the Programmed Death-1 (PD-1) and B7.1 receptors. The primary objective of this study is to assess the safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of CK-301 when administered intravenously as a single agent to subjects with selected recurrent or metastatic cancers.

Developing Optimal Parameters for Hyperpolarized Noble Gas and Inert Fluorinated Gas MRI of Lung Disorders

Purpose:The goal of this research is to optimize the MRI system to obtain ideal lung images using Hyperpolarized (HP) Noble and Inert Fluorinated Gases as contrast agents. Lung coils tuned to the frequencies of these gases will be used. This study will take place at TBRHSC in the Cardiorespiratory Department and in the Research MRI facility.
