Special Issue "Cancer Vaccines"
A special issue of Vaccines (ISSN 2076-393X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2015).
The past few years have demonstrated great progress in the field of tumor immunotherapy through agents that address mechanisms of immune escape. Many of today’s immune based therapies depend on augmenting pre-existing immunity in cancer patients. For this reason there is increasing interest in the further development of cancer vaccines. The advent of the last decade has allowed the identification of multiple new antigens, new technologies, and new clinical settings in which to test vaccines.
The journal Vaccines would like to publish a special issue on Cancer Vaccines. This issue will bring together preliminary data and up-to-date breakthroughs in the discipline that now reflect our understanding of how best cancer vaccines can and should be employed. As a well-known expert in the field, we hope that you will agree to be a contributor to the issue.
I look forward to working with you to deliver a state of the art edition that will serve as a roadmap for the field.
Prof. Mary Lenora (Nora) Disis
