Bioinformatics Services to be used by Emerging Market Players to Develop Immunotherapy 

Bioinformatics services could soon be used to find the next effective drug to cure cancer. Recently, bioinformatics services were used to develop immunotherapy, which will be hailed as the future treatment for cancer. Some immunotherapies have already shown positive results in curing cancer. Engineers from the University of Houston are using bioinformatics services to identify high-performance immune cells to develop immunotherapies, which can be used to cure cancer. 

The European Union is using bioinformatics to discover new immunotherapies to cure cancer. The research activities are led by the Medical University of Innsbruck in Austria, along with efforts undergoing in other countries such as the Czech Republic, Germany, Spain, France, and the Netherlands. Industry partners including AaptaIT and Definiens AG are also a part of this research activity. The European Union supported the activities by granting 3 million euros in the initial stage. Dr. Zlatko Trajanoski, the director of Innsbruck Division of Bioinformatics, is taking initiatives to develop new immunotherapies to treat cancer patients. Through the Advanced Bioinformatics Platform for Personalized Cancer Immunotherapy (APERIM), the experts are developing the conception of better immunotherapies to treat cancer.
