4.  Development of new chemo-immunotherapy approach for colorectal cancer
SERB-CRG 59.00 36 Professor Kanwaljit Chopra / Dr. Sandip V. Pawar 1 Despite advances in cancer therapy employing chemo, immuno and radiotherapy, nonsignificant reduction in mortality and relapse rate have remained a major challenge. Very recently, a promising approach of chemo-immunotherapy is being explored wherein the potential synergism of two gating strategies will be harnessed to achieve a much robust therapeutic response. The main objective of our study is to elucidate the role of indigenously synthesized novel toll like receptor (TLR)7 / 8 agonists in combination with traditional chemotherapeutic agents in in-vitro and in-vivo models of colorectal cancer along-with biochemical, molecular, genetic and histopathological biomarkers elucidation. The findings will substantiate the role of TLR-7 and 8 as novel targets for chemo-immunotherapy. These compounds can be further translated in to the clinics.
