Special Issue "Immunotherapy for Gastrointestinal Cancer"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2023) | Viewed by 19977
Gastrointestinal cancers are amongst the most common malignancies worldwide. The past few decades have seen improvements in surgical approaches, tailoring of radiotherapy, and optimized utilization of classic chemotherapy, as well as the introduction of newer targeted therapies. However, for many patients the overall prognosis remains poor. New immunotherapeutic strategies, led by the incorporation of immune-checkpoint inhibitors, are rapidly entering the clinical setting for many GI tumor types, with additional studies and analyses serving to refine their utilization. Multiple additional promising agents and combinations are in development. In this Special Issue, we welcome your contribution to immunotherapy of gastrointestinal cancer.
