Scientific Tracks Abstracts: J Cancer Sci Ther

Abstract :

This lecture will focus on a variety of topics related to tumour immunology & immunotherapy for clinical evaluation of candidate therapeutics for treating several types of tumors, and will include discussion of: Hallmarks of Cancer: Applications to cancer medicine; Targeted therapies in medical oncology: successes, failures and next steps; Inflammation in the genesis and perpetuation of cancer; Linking stress system activity and immunity dysregulation to cancer development and progression: inflammation in the genesis and perpetuation of cancer; Prognostic value and rationale of immunotherapy development; Antibody therapy of cancer/Immunotherapy: combination and dosing schedule are key; Identification of therapeutic targets for Immunomodulation and Cancer chemoprevention. In addition to these subjects, attendees of this lecture will be familiarized with the need for rigorous and stringent testing of candidate immunotherapeutics, so that only the most promising therapies are advanced to clinical trial evaluation of efficacy when treating patients in the era of Translational Oncology, from the bench to the bedside.
