The Potent New Anti-Tumor Immunotherapies
Organizer(s): Nicholas P. Restifo
Date: March 28 - April 02, 2007
Location: Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, AB, Canada
Sponsored by sanofi-aventis
Summary of Meeting:
For the first time, significant numbers of patients with some solid cancer histologies can be successfully treated using immunological means. Progress in our understanding of immune activation, homeostasis and regulation has reached a “tipping point” that has enabled the development of multiple anti-tumor immune-based strategies. Adoptive cell transfer (ACT) of anti-tumor T cells after the depletion host immune cells causes objective regression in about 50% of the patients. Work on therapeutic cancer vaccines is intensive and will actively be discussed at the meeting. The challenge now is to control and direct the potent new weapons in at the immunotherapist’s disposal. This meeting will bring the key scientists who are securing the basic foundations of the new immunology and the translational immunotherapists who are pioneering strategies that objectively work in the clinic.
