Just as each person is unique, so is each person's cancer. And now, scientists and clinicians are tailoring new treatments to individual cancers.
In this webinar for patients and caregivers, our expert highlights advances that are enabling doctors to treat cancer patients in ever more personalized ways, including:
- Biomarkers that help doctors’ predict which immunotherapies might work best for each patient and help guide their treatment-related decisions
- Combination therapies (guided by biomarkers) that address the specific characteristics of an individual patient’s disease and immune states
- Cellular immunotherapies that enhance a patient’s natural immune cells to make them even more effective at targeting and eliminating cancer cells
- Vaccines that tell a patient’s immune system precisely what their mutated cancer cells “look like” so that adaptive immune responses can be effectively launched against them
Our expert will be announced shortly.
The "Cancer Immunotherapy and You" webinar series is produced by the Cancer Research Institute and is hosted by our science writer, Arthur Brodsky, Ph.D. The 2019 series is made possible with generous support from Bristol-Myers Squibb and Cellectis.
