Tumour-selective targeted delivery of antibody-cytokine fusion proteins: Jamie Spangler, AACR 2023
Antibody-cytokine fusion proteins are a promising immunotherapy that could overcome off-target immune cell activation and the short serum half-life associated with low-dose interleukin-2 treatment. We were delighted to talk with Dr. Jamie Spangler (Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, USA) around the rationale for fusing cytokines to anti-cytokine antibodies in targeted therapy, the improved therapeutic efficacy […]
DNA damage as a target and predictor of treatment response in immunotherapy: Sandra Demaria, AACR 2023 (Part 2)
A defective DNA damage response in cancer cells can lead to genomic instability and impact the immunogenicity of tumours, improving the efficacy of immunotherapy treatment approaches. It was a pleasure to talk with Professor Sandra Demaria (Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, NY, USA) to discuss how radiation-induced DNA damage is targeted in treatment strategies with immunotherapy, […]
