After a competitor exhausts its supply of an item bought on deal, Strack & Van Til still has it-and continues to sell it at a low price, Van Til said.
Combined with the company's buying strategy, this approach has enabled Strack & Van Til to go head-to-head with chains and come through unbowed, said Van Til.
A weakened, nonvirulent mouse leukemia virus serves as a carrier to insert the gene into the chromosomes of TIL cells.
The ultimate goal in the trial is to figure out what makes certain TIL cells potent cancer killers, he adds.
In an attempt to get around these problems, Blaese, Rosenberg and Anderson propose to insert stable genetic "markers" into cultured TIL cells before reinoculating patients.
Although the current proposal simply calls for inserting a marker gene, later proposals may seek approval for the insertion into TIL cells of genes that code for the production of potentially therapeutic factors such as interleukin-2 or tumor necrosis factor, Blaese says.
