Thermo Fisher Scientific Expands Steriles Manufacturing and Research Capabilities in Asia-Pacific Region
Gavin had late stage brain cancer and not a lot of time. Chemotherapy and surgeries were not working, and Nicole was desperate to find a way to save her son. She knew of a drug in clinical trial that was showing promising results in adults, so she contacted the manufacturer and made her case for Gavin. The manufacturer agreed to let Gavin take the drug, but as a child he couldn’t participate in the existing trial. They needed to create a special trial so he could participate. Fisher Clinical Services, by Thermo Fisher Scientific, and the drug company worked together to create a special clinical trial, just for him. For the next two and half years, Thermo Fisher delivered Gavin’s individual dose on time, every time. The result was astounding. Not only did the tumor stop growing, it actually shrunk. And Gavin? He’s able to be a kid again, attending school, playing with friends and taking karate class. He’s now a brown belt in karate, going for black.
