Special Issue "The Immunology and Biology of Brain Tumors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2019
We welcome your contributions to this Special Issue entitled “The Immunology and Biology of Brain Tumors”. Immunotherapy has become a viable treatment modality for a variety of cancers (and referred to as Science Magazine’s “Breakthrough of the Year” in 2013, as well as ASCO’s “Advance of the Year” in both 2016 and 2017). This Special Issue will focus on the relevance of immunobiology in brain tumors, touching on elements of immune suppression, immune stimulation, the immune microenvironment, with culminations in translational immunotherapy. Topics include, but are not limited to:
History of Brain Tumor Immunotherapy
Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors
- by the tumor microenvironment
- by tumor-release factors
- in peripheral compartments
- regulatory T cells
- nucleic acids
- adoptive T cells
- CAR-T cells
- antibodies and constructs
