Let's hear it for our March employee spotlight, Doug!

He's been at Torigen for a little over three years now. He says, "I love what we're doing here, providing options for pets with cancer."

His role is a business development manager in the Midwest. He covers KS, MO, AR, NE and OK.

He does not have any furry friends at home, but he will eventually adopt a dog when the right situation comes along.

For his fun fact he says, "I love to cook and have 15 BBQ grills/smokers that I use depending on what I'm making.. couple of flat top griddles as well...😁"

Thanks to Doug for all his efforts and energy that he brings to Team Torigen!

We're back with more Q&A! A common question you may receive from pet owners is "How fast does Torigen's treatment work?"

When our immunotherapy is being used as the sole method of treatment and the patient is not immunocompromised, it can result in the generation of an immune system response that builds with successive doses during the 3 week treatment schedule.

02/14/2024

Meet another cancer warrior, Rigsby! His parents sent us this photo of him receiving his first vaccine.

Torigen’s immunotherapy works by stimulating an immune response that targets cancer cells specific to the patient, allowing for a variety of tumor associated antigens to be presented to the immune system. This abundant choice of antigens may increase the likelihood of a successful response.

Join us in sending best wishes to Rigsby on his fight against cancer! Learn more about our immunotherapy today: https://hubs.li/Q02jwstf0

Our experimental autologous cancer vaccine is a personalized treatment created from the patient's deactivated tumor cells. Treatments like these work to activate the immune system against specific tumor-associated antigens found on the outside surface of the tumor cells that are different than normal 'self' cells.

With over 10 years of supporting pre-clinical research, our treatment is a whole cell tissue vaccine. Treatments like these allow for a variety of tumor associated antigens to be presented to the immune system. By utilizing a portion of the animal's own tumor tissue, we create a personalized treatment specific to the individual animal's cancerous cells.

Visit our website at www.torigen.com to chat live with our experts!

Experimental Autologous Cancer Vaccines created by Torigen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. are regulated by the USDA Center for Veterinary Biologics. For use under supervision/prescription of a licensed veterinarian. Safety & efficacy have not been established.
