Seattle Genetics: Creating Breakthrough Cancer Treatment Therapies

Biotechnology continues to be an industry of great importance. The top companies in this industry develop some of the most cutting edge medicines, treatments and medical breakthroughs. Things that seemed impossible only a few years ago are now happening. This is in no small part thanks to leaders in the industry, like Seattle Genetics.

As a biotechnology company, Seattle Genetics works toward developing cutting-edge therapies to help treat cancer. They lead the biotech industry with regards to Antibody-Drug Conjugates, which use the power of certain antibodies to target cancer cells for delivery of agents that will kill those cells. These delivery systems work to avoid causing damage to any cells that are not targeted to help reduce the side effects associated with chemotherapy.

In addition to their development and commercialization of Antibody-Drug Conjugates, the team at Seattle Genetics also continues to work on breakthroughs for medical issues that are not being directly addressed effectively right now. In other words, Seattle Genetics is working diligently to create new biotechnology solutions that may very well lead to better treatments for people in the future.

Of course, no company can blaze a successful path to the future in such a high tech, medically-related industry without great leadership. Seattle Genetics was founded by Clay Siegall, Ph.D. He started the company back in 1998 and serves as its CEO and Chairman of the Board today. Dr. Siegall has specialized training and experience with cancer targeting therapies. Before he founded this company, he worked with the Bristol-Myers Squibb Pharmaceutical Institute from 1991 to 1997. Over the years Dr. Siegall has received plenty of awards, including 2013 University of Maryland Alumnus of the Year for Computer, Math.

As healthcare issues continue to be of importance to most people, it is companies like Seattle Genetics that are sure to be leading the way to new breakthrough therapies. This company is a great example of how cancer treatments continue to improve by leaps and bounds and is likely to continue to for many years to come.

The Innovation of Slyce

Individuals who love to shop and love to look for ideas for clothing will now be impressed with the latest technology in image recognition. Despite the traditional use of image recognition for security purposes, product recognition can now be used for retail shopping. Now shopping has been made easier than ever because individuals only have to find one article of clothing they like rather than having to search through different databases and online stores to find it. As image recognition has become more and more relevant in today’s technology, one company in particular has become the lead company in image recognition and in visual search. This company is called Slyce and has been able to beat out any competitor with this company’s superior technology.

With the help of Slyce’s leadership team, this company has created a flawless visual search option for the consumers and those who love to retail shop. Thanks to Slyce, this technology has begun to shape the future of the internet and commerce. In the next several years, it is expected that the brick and mortar shopping experience will slowly fade away to be replaced by a new experience in customer engagement within the retail industry. With high standards for the technology and for the marketing team, this company is worth the try thanks to the new and inventive ideas that this company has provided to the consumer.

The app that Slyce provides only requires an image to be downloaded within the database. This process is so simple that one does not need to know the science behind this innovation. All that is needed to know is how to snap an image and download it within the database. Once this process is completed, the image itself should be found or a similar image with added information such as the price and what store it comes from. This product is a flawless experience to the customer and provides immediate results online without having to sift through multiple databases.

Slyce technology can be used for multiple purposes that includes snapping images to buy a product, snapping images to find out information on a product, or snapping an image to make a list. This technology now allows for the customer to find clothing or other objects in a real world setting. All one has to do is snap an image of what is desired and a list of information and similar objects will appear.

Your Hair Reborn

There’s been a lot of internet buzz on YouTube about Wen cleansing conditioner. Supposedly it’s a miracle product that cleanses your hair without over drying. But does it live up to the hype? Could one hair product really replace shampoo, conditioner, mousse, and styling products?

In testing Wen, Emily McClure became the hero I never knew I needed. She starts out by taking a snapshot of her “before” hair. It looks thin, and weighed down with grease, hairspray, and the everyday wear and tear our hair goes through during the course of twenty-four hours. Initially she admitted to some skepticism. How could a moisturizing conditioner keep her hair from looking weighed down and dirty? But ever the explorer, she dedicated her hair to a full week of washing with nothing but cleansing conditioner. She even provided a before and after picture for every day of her experiment. Now that’s the scientific method at work! The photos have not been edited in any way, nor was there a professional photographer involved. It’s just Emily, her camera phone, and Fig Wen cleansing conditioner. This is what she found.

I was feeling trepidation as I scrolled down to look at her first “after” picture. In my mind there was no way that her hair could’ve survived so much moisturizing without looking dirtier than before she showered. My jaw dropped after day one’s “after” picture. Lucious, shiny, clean-looking locks met my disbelieving eyes! I eagerly scrolled down, noticing how each and every day made her hair look even better than the day before.
By the end of the week Wen turned Emily (and myself) into a believer. I can’t wait to buy on Amazon my own bottle of Wen cleansing conditioner.
