Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Immune therapy has revolutionized the treatment of cancer.  Much of the impact has been achieved due to immune checkpoint inhibitor (ICI) antibodies targeting the Programmed Death 1 (PD1) axis.  It is now clear that, unfortunately, these anti-PD1 ICIs alone are not sufficient to achieve durable tumor control in most patients with cancer. Fortunately, tremendous progress has been made in developing novel approaches to manipulate the immune system to fight cancer.  These include cellular therapies, bi-specific T-cell engagers (BiTES) and therapies aimed at targeting immunometabolism, the microbiome or non-T cell populations of immune cells.  We are pleased to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue of Cancers entitled “Immunomodulation in Cancer Treatment”.  This Special Issue will focus on novel approaches to manipulating the immune response against cancer that demonstrate the potential to translate to improved clinical outcomes. For this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome.  Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Cell therapies utilizing tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs), T-cell receptor transgenic T-cells (TCR-T) or chimeric antigen receptor T-cells (CAR-T);
  • Bispecific antibodies or T-cell engagers;
  • Novel cytokine therapies;
  • Microbiome-targeted therapies;
  • Immuno-metabolic treatments;
  • Therapies targeting innate lymphoid cells (ILCs), macrophages or other innate immune cells.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Dr. Samuel D. Saibil
