Cancer Immunotherapy: Theory and Application


With the rapid increase in our understanding of the immune system, more and more small molecule, peptide, recombinant antibody, and vaccine, as well as cellular therapeutic modalities, are being applied to manipulate the immune response for cancer treatment. These immunotherapies have provided significant benefit for cancer, especially the application of immune checkpoint inhibitors and chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapies.

To present the recent advances in the theory and application of cancer immunotherapy, we invite authors/investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will illustrate and stimulate the continuing effort to understand the implications of immunotherapy.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Advances in cancer immunotherapy theory
  • Immunomodulators for cancer
  • Immune enhancement therapies for cancer
  • Immune recovery for cancer
  • Genome editing for cancer immunotherapy
  • Cancer gene therapy of the immune system
  • Monoclonal antibodies for cancer immunotherapies
  • Immune checkpoint inhibitors
  • Dendritic cell-based pump-priming therapies
  • T cell adoptive transfer
  • Genetically engineered T cells therapies
  • Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapies
  • Vaccination for cancer
