Tolero Pharmaceuticals in the Daily Herald

April 29, 2018

On April 22, the Daily Herald published an article highlighting Tolero Pharmaceuticals’ research in “personalized medicine.”

This concept is based on the idea that drugs can be more effective once doctors know whether or not they will be right for specific patients. “It’s the right drug for the right patient for the right disease,” said Kelly Slone, president and CEO of BioUtah.

Tolero has already seen success testing this type of drug for treating acute myeloid leukemia. As Tolero Pharmaceuticals CEO David Bears said, “Now what we’re trying to do is develop a drug, and we say, ‘this drug isn’t for everybody, but we have a way to tell whether it’s for you.’ I want to see my discoveries move into something that can help people, that’s motivating to me, thinking I can help people with something I’ve discovered in our lab.”
