Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, immunotherapies for solid tumors have generated spectacular outcomes for cancer patients in clinics. Adoptive cell therapies (ACT), including using autologous tumor-infiltrating lymphocyte (TILs), TCR T-cells (TCR-engineered T cell), chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells, tumor vaccines and checkpoint blockade, have emerged as the most effective treatments for solid tumors. The current challenge for solid cancer immunotherapies is that although some patients have benefited from these treatments, many cancers will still have variable responses. The purpose of this Special Issue is to understand the treatment advantages and disadvantages in order to provide exciting opportunities for effective anticancer immunotherapies for solid tumors. This Special Issue welcomes reviews, as well as original research articles, which should be submitted by 30 June 2024.
