GTC is proud to present the 5th Immunotherapeutics & Immunomonitoring Conference to be held on Jan 31 ~ Feb 1, 2013 inSan Diego, CA.

The immune system plays a central role not only in fighting infections, but also in many other diseases and medical conditions including cancer. The study of the immune system has lead to significant findings in many fields of medicine and biology and has resulted in the discovery of novel and unique substances and reagents that are now widely used for diagnosis, evaluation and therapy of different malignant diseases. The development of prophylactic and therapeutic vaccines, as well as innovative combinatorial immunotherapeutic approaches has substantially decreased mortality and morbidity and improved the life, life expectancy, and the well being of the millions of patients.

Network with clinical immunologists, pathologists, and pharmacologists, as well as practicing clinicians and R&D scientists, to discuss the newest development in the field. Leading experts from the scientific and clinical arenas and industry will present about novel findings and developments in the constantly changing area of immunological assays and procedures. They will also discuss recent advances in immunotherapy, as they relate to various immunotherapy modalities, specific cancers, cell subsets, animal models, and tumor microenvironment. Potential clinical feasibility and commercial potential of the newest data obtained from leading biomedical research laboratories will also be discussed.

Developing a More Precise Seasonal Flu Vaccine
During the 2014-15 flu season, the poor match between the virus used to make the world’s vaccine stocks and the circulating seasonal virus yielded a vaccine that was less than 20 percent effective.
Fighting Cancer with Borrowed Immunity
A new step in cancer immunotherapy: researchers from the Netherlands Cancer Institute and University of Oslo/Oslo University Hospital show that even if one's own immune cells cannot recognize and fight their tumors, someone else's immune cells might.
Loss Of Y Chromosome Increases Risk Of Alzheimer’s
Men with blood cells that do not carry the Y chromosome are at greater risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. This is in addition to an increased risk of death from other causes, including many cancers. These new findings by researchers at Uppsala University could lead to a simple test to identify those at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
Immune Cells Remember Their First Meal
Scientists at the University of Bristol have identified the trigger for immune cells' inflammatory response – a discovery that may pave the way for new treatments for many human diseases.
