Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recent clinical trials have shown promising results in immunotherapy for cancer treatment. However, cancer immunotherapy is suitable for only a small percentage of cancer patients. To expand the patient population that can be benefit from tumor immunotherapy, it is essential to understand the key mechanisms that generate the immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment (TME).

We invite authors to submit studies on cancer immunotherapy or comprehensive review summaries of exciting new advances in the field.

This Special Issue aims to shed light on cancer metabolism, with a special focus on immunotherapy, for researchers, clinicians, and physicians who are interested in cancer immunotherapy.

Dr. Hanping Shi
Guest Editor
