Matt brings experiences from both the capitol and the campus which will help ensure the success of this initiative. Nettles, an attorney and managing director of Generation Growth Capital in Milwaukee, chaired the search committee for an executive director. He declined to identify Badger Advocates' board members but said a list will be released in the next week or so.

Morphotek, Inc. Announces Collaboration Agreement with University of Wisconsin-Madison

Morphotek Inc., a subsidiary of Eisai Inc. announced that it entered into a collaborative research agreement with University of Wisconsin-Madison to elucidate the immunosuppressive effects of the CA125 tumor antigen on the investigational monoclonal antibody farletuzumab. Farletuzumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody (mAb) that binds to folate receptor alpha (FRA), a cell-surface protein highly expressed in ovarian carcinoma but largely absent from normal tissue. The collaboration will initially investigate the immune status of primary macrophage and NK cells derived from the blood of ovarian cancer patients with varying levels of CA125. In addition, the collaboration will test whether the farletuzumab-mediated killing of ovarian cancer cells using patient-derived immune cells is affected by tumor-derived CA125.
