Study Summary

This is a phase I, open label study employing diphencyprone (DPCP) to characterize gene expression changes of various immune cell and tumor markers in cutaneous metastases treated with topical DPCP twice weekly for 12 weeks in combination with PD-1 or PD-L1 immune checkpoint inhibition (ICI), compared to pre-treatment cutaneous metastases and to describe the adverse events associated with DPCP when administered topically twice weekly for 12 weeks in combination with PD-1 or PD-L1 ICI.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
