About this book

Introduction

A continuously evolving technique, immunotherapy for the treatment of cancers now incorporates the use of immune cells infused during bone marrow transplants as well as approaches like cell and gene therapy, while stem cell-based therapies, tissue engineering, and targeting have also contributed to the latest successes in pre-clinical immunotherapy studies. In Immunotherapy of Cancer: Methods and Protocols, expert researchers in the field describe detailed procedures for trainees and experts in the area of basic, clinical science who wish to undertake their own cutting-edge immunotherapy studies. In addition to the protocols, the volume also contains two general overviews providing useful updates in each area as well as summaries of recent pre-clinical and clinical trials. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and up-to-date, Immunotherapy of Cancer: Methods and Protocols seeks to guide scientists along the path to a further developed system of immunotherapeutic treatments in order to reduce and hopefully eradicate this terrible disease.
