Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It has been more than ten years since the clinical use of immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs), and we are still trying to utilize them more effectively.

This Special Issue aims to compile a collection of articles that highlight the latest advancements in the clinical research of immune checkpoint inhibitors, including but not limited to the following:

  • Clinical trials evaluating the efficacy and safety of immune checkpoint inhibitors in different cancer types.
  • Combination therapies involving immune checkpoint inhibitors.
  • Management of adverse events related to immune checkpoint inhibitors.
  • Biomarkers related to immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy.
  • Timing to stop ICIs.

We invite the submission of original research articles, reviews, and case reports in this field.

Dr. Yugo Ashino
Dr. Ichiro Onoyama
