Case Study 2

Innovation: MHRA helps OxSonics early on

OxSonics is developing a new generation of ultrasound devices with the aim of solving a major challenge that exists in the treatment of solid tumour cancer today, where penetration by anti-cancer drugs faces significant limitations. This is due to the unique anatomy of solid tumours. OxSonics believes that its technology has the potential to overcome these limitations, enhancing delivery of anti-cancer drugs deep into solid tumours, including to those cells that lie farthest from blood vessels, which may lead to better efficacy of drugs.
