AbbVie has announced a new immuno-oncology research alliance with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

The three-year collaboration agreement will provide a framework for MD Anderson and AbbVie to efficiently choose and carry out preclinical and clinical studies evaluating new ideas in the field of cancer immunotherapy.
