9781461488088: Advances in Tumor Immunology and Immunotherapy (Current Cancer Research)

Recent advances in understanding of fundamental immunology have created new insights into the dynamic interactions between tumors and the immune system. This includes new understanding of T- and B-cell interaction, immune inhibitory mechanisms including the biology of T regulatory cells, myeloid suppressor cells, and dendritic cell subsets.

Enhanced understanding of mechanisms underlying T-cell anergy such as arginine deprivation, immunosuppressive cytokines, defective innate and interferon response pathways, and NKG2D downregulation have all provided new insight into suppression of anti-tumor immunity and tumor evasion.

In addition to emerging understanding of tumor evasion, new immune targets such as CTLA4 blockade, NK stimulatory receptors, manipulation of the antigen processing and presentation, cytokine and costimulatory responses all provide new possibilities for enhancing anti-tumor immunity even in tumors previously felt to be resistant to immune attack. Several of these strategies have already been realized in the clinic. The volume will explore evolving paradigms in antigen presentation, dendritic cell biology, the innate response and immunosuppressive mechanisms, and emerging strategies for manipulation of the immune system for therapeutic benefit that have realized success in neuroblastoma, leukemia, melanoma, lung cancer, and allogeneic transplantation. Early successes as well as failures will be highlighted to provide a snapshot of the state of clinical immunotherapy with an eye to future possibilities such as combination therapies, adoptive T-cell transfer, and the retargeting of immune cells via T-cell receptor engineering.

From the Back Cover:

This volume explores recent advances in understanding of fundamental immunology  and insights into  the dynamic interactions between tumors and the immune system, that  provide new opportunities  for therapeutic  intervention in cancer.  Chapter topics include evolving paradigms in the innate and adaptive response,   newly appreciated immunosuppressive mechanisms,  and  novel preclinical  strategies for manipulation of the immune system for therapeutic benefit in cancer. In addition, recent successes in the clinic, and emerging opportunities are covered. Future possibilities, such as the use of antibody engineering, fusion proteins,  and the retargeting of immune cells through T-cell receptor engineering are discussed by  leaders in the field,  focusing  on recent clinical experience, promising technologies, and challenges to clinical success.
