Special Issue Information
Recent advances in cancer immunotherapy, including those in immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) or adoptive T-cell therapies, have contributed to better outcomes in cancer patients. However, even ICIs are ineffective in the treatment of certain cancers. Therefore, new strategies to enhance the efficacy of treatments are needed. It has been reported that several commonly used drugs, such as statin, exert immune-modulatory effects; due to such properties, these drugs are expected to enhance the body’s immunity against cancer cells.
This Special Issue aims to further develop the current body of literature on the current knowledge regarding the immunomodulatory effects of a wide variety of drugs, which will aid the advancement and development of cancer therapy.
We are inviting submissions of review or original articles on all aspects of “Immunomodulatory Effects of Drugs for Cancer Immunotherapy”.
