Immuno Oncology Excerpt :

Over the last decade, immuno-oncology has witnessed an astonishing pace of discovery and innovation translating into unprecedented successes in the clinical setting, arguably representing one of the most profound and transforming revolution in the history of cancer therapy. This book provides a concise and accurate outline of the main developments in major tumor types including melanoma, lung, breast, brain and renal cell cancers. In addition, transversal chapters that describe the commonalities of some of the therapeutic strategies are provided to cover topics like immune checkpoint biology, T cell engineering or rational combination therapies. Each chapter has been authored by senior key opinion leaders in their respective fields to provide the most up-to-date view on cancer immuno-oncology. To reflect on the key translational aspect of immuno-oncology, all chapters are making explicit connections between basic science discoveries and the resulting translational therapeutic strategies. Immuno-Oncology will be an invaluable source of information for scientists interested in the translation of basic immunology into the clinical practice, as well as for clinician interested in deepening their knowledge of current and upcoming immune strategies in the fight against cancers.

Cancer Immunology and Immunotherapy Excerpt :

Delivery Technologies for Immuno-Oncology: Volume 1: Delivery Strategies and Engineering Technologies in Cancer Immunotherapy examines the challenges of delivering immuno-oncology therapies. Immuno-oncology (IO) is a growing field of medicine at the interface of immunology and cancer biology leading to development of novel therapeutic approaches, such as chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CAR-T) and immune checkpoint blockade antibodies, that are clinically approved approaches for cancer therapy. Although currently approved IO approaches have shown tremendous promise for select types of cancers, broad application of IO strategies could even further improve the clinical success, especially for diseases such as pancreatic cancer, brain tumors where the success of IO so far has been limited. Nanotechnology-based targeted delivery strategies could improve the delivery efficiency of IO agents as well as provide additional avenues for novel therapeutic and vaccination strategies. Additionally, a number of locally-administered immunogenic scaffolds and therapeutic strategies, such as the use of STING agonist, could benefit from rationally designed biomaterials and delivery approaches. Delivery Technologies for Immuno-Oncology: Volume 1: Delivery Strategies and Engineering Technologies in Cancer Immunotherapy creates a comprehensive treaty that engages the scientific and medical community who are involved in the challenges of immunology, cancer biology, and therapeutics with possible solutions from the nanotechnology and drug delivery side. Comprehensive treaty covering all aspects of immuno-oncology (IO) Novel strategies for delivery of IO therapeutics and vaccines Forecasting on the future of nanotechnology and drug delivery for IO

Immuno Oncology Excerpt :

The immune system offers the possibility of treating cancer and its metastasis without the toxicities of chemotherapy. Unfortunately, despite recent medical advances, overall survival of patients is still relatively dismal. Advances such development of Provenge, which is the first widely accepted immunotherapy of cancer have attracted media attention and interest, however survival advantage was only 3 months in double blind trials. In this book we take a multi-disciplinary approach to analyzing in a highly referenced and technical manner the various cellular, biochemical and immunological changes that occur in cancer patients. By categorizing what cancer does to the body, and how the body tries to fight the cancer, an overall picture is painted of various interventions and combination interventions that can be tried in order to maximize probability of patient improvement. Various conventional and unconventional approaches to cancer are described in this volume, including macrophage activation therapy, oxidative medicine, lymphokine activated killers, and non-specific immune stimulants. Significant effort was made by the authors to detail how various components of the immune system collaborate in the recognition of cancer cells, how cancer cells avoid immune attack, and means of derepressing immunity using chemical, cellular, and genetic approaches. Specific tumor immune evasion mechanisms that are described include: a) the tryptophan-catabolizing enzyme indolamine 2,3 deoxygenase (IDO), which selectively induces suppression of cytotoxic T cells through anergy, apoptosis, and T regulatory cell generation; b) IL-10, a cytokine produced by tumor cells, as well as tumor-associated macrophages, which induces generation of T regulatory cells; c) cancer derived exosomes, which act as nanoparticle vesicles, that directly induce apoptosis of tumor-reactive T cells, as well as assist in formation of extracellular matrix that is receptive to tumor metastasis; d) soluble HLA-li

A Cure Within Excerpt :

Cancer. There are few words in the English language having such a visceral, personal impact. Cancer patient. Cancer survivor. Pretty much anyone over the age of 30 knows one. A family member. A friend. Someone lost too soon. Someone forever changed. But we don't really like to talk about it, because there's really not much we can do. We fight cancer, sure, but we rarely win. Defeating cancer is one of medical science's greatest challenges. So when a novel approach to treatment seems promising, there is an intense interest in its progress and those who are making it. This book is about both - the progress and the pioneers - and its focus is the revolutionary science of something called cancer immunotherapy. This medical marvel, cancer immunotherapy - also called immuno-oncology - is still in its infancy. Yet, mobilizing the immune system to recognize and attack cancer has long been imagined, and occasionally attempted, for more than 100 years: It is only just recently that significant - in fact, unprecedented - progress has been made. With the use of newly approved immunotherapy treatments, there are now reports of hundreds, if not thousands of cancer patients with advanced disease living years beyond all prior expectation. Some of these once-terminally ill patients are now called "cured." This has never happened before. As Dr. Jill O'Donnell-Tormey comments in the Foreword, "It has taken decades of basic research and billions of dollars of investment to build the foundation upon which today's lifesaving treatments are based. This book offers a uniquely entertaining yet inspiring glimpse into the lives and minds of the academic and industry pioneers who forged this new field. It is a story of how an obscure and oft-derided field of cancer research - and the tenacious few scientists who refused to abandon it - came from behind to become the new 'darling of oncology.'" The book's author, Neil Canavan, is an experienced commentator on new developments in medical science
