Combining immunotherapy and radiation therapy may be a powerful treatment approach for castration-resistant prostate cancer.
Researchers are chronicling rare but serious toxicities that may occur with immune checkpoint inhibitors, the most widely prescribed class of immunotherapies.
A study published June 17 in Nature offers clues as to why blocking inhibitory receptors on tumor-infiltrating T cells may not always work

Some cancer patients receiving CAR-T infusions can now avoid hospital stays because of a telemedicine program launched by Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center.
Researchers have discovered that a new “checkpoint” protein on immune system cells is active in tumors, and that blocking it — in combination with other treatments — is a successful therapeutic approach in mouse models of cancer.
Immunotherapies that take off the “brakes” on the adaptive anti-tumor response have worked well in melanoma and lung cancer but less so in breast cancers. That could change.
A recent study in the journal Cancer Research demonstrates that a RIG-I agonist has potent immunogenic and therapeutic effects in breast cancer.
