The Immune System and Cancer
List Sep 23, 2019 | By Joanna Owens, PhD.
There has been an acceleration in our understanding of how cancer evades the immune system, and an explosion in new therapeutics that re-configure the immune system to mount a powerful anticancer response.
In this list, we highlight:
- the impact of aging on cancer development
- how tumors evade the immune system
- the current and future picture for “immunotherapy” cancer treatments
The host systems often used to manufacture protein-based biotherapeutics can produce their own endogenous proteins, known as host cell proteins (HCPs), which can ultimately contaminate the product. Download this list to learn about some of the most commonly used methods for HCP analysis.READ MORE
