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.
In this edition of Guided by Science, we define a few key terms that are frequently lost in translation to help you better understand how the immune system works and the promise of immuno-oncology.
While the $1 billion announced to fund this initiative is a large figure on its own, the effort will need to hyper-focus its resources and influence to make a meaningful impact. In this issue, we explore some practical ways that Cancer Moonshot 2020 can make good on its promise to improve outcomes for patients everywhere.
