Immunotherapies have recently shown remarkable results in the treatment of cancer patients. However, there are still many questions that remain to be solved for more effective therapies, such as tumor heterogeneous profile, tumor microenvironment, and tumor survival epigenetic and genetic pathways, all of which make patients resistant to the presently available treatments for cancer.
This issue will focus on different immunotherapies, CAR-T, CAR/NK autologous and allogeneic therapies, and tumor microenvironments such as checkpoint proteins, hypoxia, tumor surrounding cells macrophages, cancer-associated fibroblasts, vascular and angiogenic pathways, cytokines, chemokines, T reg cells blocking immune response, and tumor intracellular pathways contributing to resistance to immunotherapies. This issue will highlight different combination therapy and next-generation personalized therapy approaches that will be developed in the future to enhance patient treatment.
