Translational Immunotherapy of Brain Tumorsgives researchers and practitioners an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of the field. Chapters include adoptive immunotherapy, immunosuppression, CAR therapy of brain tumors, and dendritic cell therapy for brain tumors.

Very few agents have been shown to be efficacious in the treatment of malignant gliomas. Recently, there have been a number of studies demonstrating the potential success of immunotherapy for brain tumors. Immunotherapeutics are becoming the most frequent drugs to be used in cancer therapy. These new breakthroughs, now approved by the FDA, are a part of multiple phase III international trials and ongoing research in malignant glioma, meaning that the information in this cutting-edge book will be of great importance to practitioners and researchers alike.

  • Comprehensive overview, providing an update on immunology, translational immunotherapy, and clinical trials relating to malignant gliomas
  • Edited by a prominent neurosurgeon with contributions by leading researchers in the field
  • Ideal resource for researchers and practitioners interested in learning about mechanisms that use the immune system to treat brain tumors
