As combination therapies become the new standard in cancer care, experts believe cancer vaccines will be a critical component of the new treatment landscape. In this edition of Guided By Science, we explore the world of cancer vaccines and highlight anew approach to fight cancer with the natural power of our immune system.
New evidence suggests that tumor development is heavily influenced by our immune system. This theory, termed “cancer immuno-editing,” can be broken down into three phases: elimination, equilibrium, and escape. In this edition of Guided By Science, we explore the three phases of cancer immuno-editing to understand the battle between cancer and the immune system.
As the cancer treatment landscape shifts from traditional to immune-targeted therapies, it’s important to understand the benefits and limitations of each approach. By examining the faces of immunotherapy, we can best understand how immunotherapy is changing the world.
