TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Morphogenesis Inc., the Tampa-based biotech company that developed the ImmuneFx™ cancer vaccine for dogs, cats and horses, announces that it has chosen Florida Veterinary Referral Center & 24-Hour Emergency Hospital in Estero, FL, as the newest exclusive provider of the ImmuneFx™ therapy process for companion animals.
ImmuneFx™ primes and educates the pet's own immune system to recognize and kill cancer cells without harming other cells or tissues in the body.
Florida Veterinary and Referral Center oncologist, Dr. Sarah Kraiza, said ImmuneFx™ will play an important role in the future of pet oncology treatment at the center.
"The patient's tumor tissue containing the cancerous cells is harvested here in our hospital and then sent to Veterinary Oncology Services, a Morphogenesis subsidiary, in Tampa," Dr. Kraiza explained. "The cancer cells are marked so the immune system can recognize them, and they are sent back to us here where they are injected back into the patient, initiating the immune response which will commence a strategic attack on the patient's tumor within two weeks."
ImmuneFx™ has been shown to be effective against more than 20 different types of cancers in dogs, cats and horses, and extends quality life for companion animals while managing the disease. ImmuneFx™ has been authorized by the USDA for application in companion animal cancer treatment programs. The vaccine will be in human clinical trials this fall.
"Morphogenesis and Veterinary Oncology Services are thrilled to work with the amazing team at FVRC," said Dr. Patricia Lawman, PhD, co-founder and CEO of Morphogenesis Inc. "The combination of our cancer immunotherapy and their clinical expertise offer South Florida pets treatment options that are at the leading edge of global veterinary advancements."

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
