Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Immune system protects the body from infection and disease. Cancer is a kind of disease that outsmarts the body's immune system and evades its defenses. In most cases, it doesn't show up until it is too late to do anything about it. In recent years, advances in cancer immunotherapy have improved immune system's ability to fight cancer. Despite this, it has some complications and uncertainty, as it can destroy healthy cells. Due to recent developments in targeted immunotherapy, adverse effects of cellular immunotherapy may be reduced, and patient survival might be improved. This special issue will publish original research articles and reviews demonstrating the impact of targeted specific engineered immune cells (Bispecific, BITE, Engagers) in the clinical management of hematologic malignancies.
