This is very important, as the literature indicates that combined immuno-chemotherapy and treatments can be more effective than monotherapy regimens, and Advaxis has generated some anecdotal evidence to support this idea in an attempt to Phase I Thirdly, the regime ADXS11-001 was reduced by 30 minutes infusion of 250 ml followed by oral and IV for a period of 11 days with an infusion of 80 ml to 15 minutes, followed by seven days of oral antibiotic classes, which is easier to administer and thus more clinic friendly Continue reading
