About Qu Biologics
Qu Biologics has discovered how our body’s immune response to acute infection helps our body clear cancer and other chronic inflammatory diseases. To learn more, read How SSIs Work. SSIs, which are derived from components of inactivated bacteria, are designed to activate the body’s innate immune response and restore normal immune function in the targeted organ or tissue to reverse the chronic inflammation underlying many chronic diseases including cancer, inflammatory bowel disease and other immune-related conditions. By restoring and empowering your own immune system, SSIs are designed to treat disease differently.
We bring excitement and passion to our work every day with the goal of creating treatments that will positively impact the lives of people living with chronic disease. Qu Biologics’ founder and CEO, Dr. Hal Gunn, is a clinician who for 20 years has worked to understand the link between our immune system and chronic disease, including cancer. Qu Biologics’ Chief Medical Officer Dr. Simon Sutcliffe, former CEO of the BC Cancer Agency and a distinguished clinician, scientist and leader in cancer control internationally, leads Qu’s growing clinical trial program. Chief Scientific Officer Dr. David Mullins, Assistant Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College and recognized expert in immune cell trafficking to tumours, leads a growing team of Qu scientists investigating new promising applications of SSIs.
Currently, we are recruiting participants for a Health Canada-approved randomized clinical trial to assess the safety and efficacy of SSI therapy for the treatment of Crohn’s disease. More information about this Crohn’s disease research trial and participation can be found at www.qucrohnstrial.com.
We also have begun a Health Canada-approved clinical trial to research SSI treatment in recurrent lung cancer. To learn more about this clinical trial, read Clinical Trials Lung Cancer or call the BC Cancer Agency Research Centre’s Lung Health Study line at 604-675-8088.
A Phase 2a trial in ulcerative colitis is planned to begin in Q2 2015. To learn more about this trial, read our Ulcerative Colitis Clinical Trial page.
