Developmental Cancer Therapeutics In the News

Immunotherapy

Research by City of Hope scientists has found that the way a patient's immune cells react at the beginning of immunotherapy treatment may predict the subsequent effectiveness of the therapy. The findings could improve personalized medicine for cancer patients by determining at the outset who might benefit from the therapy.
