Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cancer immunotherapy provided revolutionary approaches to treating cancer patients, along with other cancer treatments of surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and targeted therapies. Although it brings success and hopes to curing cancer, it is urgent to develop more strategies to overcome immunotherapy resistance mechanisms. Based on current types of immunotherapies, we would like to update in following aspects, but not restricted to immune checkpoint blockades, such as PD-1, PD-L1, and CTLA-4 inhibitors; adoptive cell therapies, for example, tumor-infiltrating lymphocyte therapy, CAT T-cell therapy, and natural killer cell therapy; monoclonal antibodies; oncolytic virus therapy; cancer vaccine; immune system modulators to retrospect the progress of immunotherapy. The general ideas are activating exhausted T-cells to function better, helping immune cells to recognize the cancer cells, attracting immune cells to infiltrate the tumor microenvironment. Immunotherapy also could cause side effects from the overstimulated or misdirected immune response, ranging from mild or moderate to severe to life-threatening. So, it is extremely important for patients to be monitored for any unusual symptoms.

This Special Issue of immune responses in cancer compiles a series of articles, presenting and reviewing the latest and novel strategies to focus on several important aspects of the most recent advancement in cancer therapy.
