Welcome back to Season 3!
In this episode we’re tackling one of the hottest topics in cancer research, why do cancer immunotherapies work in some people, but not in others? Why do they stop working? If we want to obtain long durable responses, then we have to understand and overcome resistance. Some of the meaty topics covered on this episode include:
- Initial resistance
- Acquired resistance
- Immune escape
- How we may be able to turn non-responders into responders
- Overcoming immuno-suppression within the tumor microenvironment.
