200238

Dear members, As patients and caregivers, we have more sources of medical information available to us than ever before to help us make the best decisions possible for our health. Advice from our doctors is sometimes not the same as the information we learn from the experiences of our peers, and there are often other sources of information available as well. Some of our decisions feel ... Read More

I have worked in the chemistry of biological molecules (biochemistry) my whole life, but not in cancer research or cell biology. So after I got 2 cancers I am educating myself (and others) about cancer by reading original research papers. 1. Do we need to strengthen our immune system to fight cancer? If we don't have constant infections then our immune system is strong. We don't need ... Read More

The overwhelming consensus was that, while the idea of being able to give reactions to posts and comments could be ... Read More

1980s and 90s were full of discoveries of immune checkpoints and immune costimulators. Due to that pioneering research of doctors and scientists we now have our new immunotherapy. (Took almost 25 years from the lab studies to clinic). Some of the study titles done at that time: 1. LAG-3, a novel lymphocyte activation gene closely related to CD4. 1990. 2. Induced expression of PD-1 ... Read More

PD-1 blockade resistance

pd-1-blockade-resistance

200238

Despite compelling antitumour activity of pd-1/pd-l1 blockade, resistance to these therapies has increasingly been observed. It shows that immunotherapy can also select for the subclones insensitive to T-cell mediated attack. There are several mechanisms of the resistance development (after initial great response) recently uncovered. Maybe more in the future. Luckily the resistance ... Read More

Immunosuppression in cancer.

200238

With the introduction of checkpoint inhibitors in the recent couple of years it became clear that they don't work for every body. There is this pd-l1 test for pd-1/pd-l1 inhibitors that helps to predict who would respond or not, but it's not a very reliable predictor. In fact some patients with no pd-l1 expression showed response to pd-1/l1 antibodies, whereas some people with high ... Read More

It is well known that the more abnormal the cancer cell is the easier it is to kill it by many methods including radiation, chemotherapy, immunotherapy. Also such severely damaged cells can kill themselves (apoptosis). Many cancers are not that much different from normal cells and it's very difficult to kill them without killing normal cells. There are drugs that work towards making ... Read More
