My current interests are in clinical trials. I have conducted many clinical trials in GI and GU cancers, currently concentrating in GU malignancies. We have a long record in looking at angiogenesis inhibitors in prostate, bladder and kidney cancer. We are also involved in several of the key trials in immunotherapy in all of these diseases--both systemic immunotherapy and the development of tumor vaccines. Finally, we are conducting several phase I trials and first in human trials of novel agents in these diseases. We are fortunate to have a large number of patients to treat with these malignancies and enroll in these clinical trials.
