Cancer is still one of the main causes of death worldwide, yet recent strides towards more effective treatments have been made in the form of new cancer immunotherapies. By weaponising the body’s own immune defences, these drugs have shown great promise in clinical trials and are now experiencing significant commercial success.

In this episode, we discuss: active immunotherapies, passive immunotherapies, using biomarkers to monitor the immune sytem, and a new autoantibody profiling tool for cancer immunotherapies
