Immune Surveillance and Cancer Immune Interactions with Pathogens
 
Cancer and the Immune System

Evolving research is demonstrating that the immune system attacks cancer cells in much the same way that it does pathogens—and that cancer cells can develop the ability to fight back. In this talk, Dr. John Kirkwood introduces Immuno-Oncology, the study of immune system interactions with cancer.

Immuno-Oncology in Renal Cell Carcinoma

Renal cell carcinomas (RCC) are nimble, they mutate quickly, and patients ultimately progress. Delivering a long-term survival benefit for patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma remains a goal. In this video, Dr. Plimack discusses current research focused on reengaging the immune system in RCC, an immunogenic cancer.

Mechanism of Pathways in Renal Cell Carcinoma

In kidney cancer, tumors can inhibit the immune response through multiple mechanisms. In this video, Dr. McDermott provides a brief look into how better understanding immune pathways may provide insight on the mechanisms governing the interaction between kidney cancer and host immune responses.

Dr. David F. McDermott is Director of the Biologic Therapy Program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, MA, and leader of the Kidney Cancer Program at the Dana Farber Harvard Cancer Center, as well as an Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.


 
Immune Activity in the Lung

With every breath, our lungs make contact with the outside world—and all the pathogens it contains. As a result, a specialized group of immune cells have developed to fight infection within the lung. How those cells interact with lung tumors—and how the tumors fight back—is the focus of this talk with Dr. Karen Lynn Reckamp.

Karen Lynn Reckamp, MD, MS, is the Co-Chair of the Lung Cancer and Thoracic Oncology Program at City of Hope in Duarte, CA.

 
Immuno-Oncology Approaches in the Lung

Knowledge of immune interactions with cancer cells in the lung is driving new research into potential immune-based therapeutics. In this video, Dr. Jack West explores the current landscape of therapeutic approaches under investigation.

Immuno-Oncology in Multiple Myeloma

There is a large unmet need for medical advances in the treatment of multiple myeloma, or bone marrow cancer. In this video, Drs. Ken Anderson and Sagar Lonial discuss rapidly evolving research in the field of Immuno-Oncology in treating multiple myeloma by harnessing the body’s own natural defenses to fight cancer.

Mechanism of Pathways in Multiple Myeloma

In multiple myeloma, or bone marrow cancer, myeloma cells thrive by interfering with the body’s natural immune surveillance system. In this video, Drs. Ken Anderson and Sagar Lonial discuss the current advances in Immuno-Oncology being used to harness the potential of the body’s own natural immunity against this disease.

A Closer Look at Mechanism of Pathways in Melanoma

Melanoma cancer cells often have the ability to evade the body’s immune system by mimicking normal cells. In this video, Dr. Jedd Wolchok discusses current research in the field of Immuno-Oncology that supports the immune system in its fight to overcome melanoma’s defense mechanisms.

Immuno-Oncology in Metastatic Melanoma

Metastatic melanoma, as an immunogenic cancer, is often associated with inducing an immune response in patients. In this video, Dr. Sanjiv Agarwala gives a brief history of Immuno-Oncology and how the immune system works to fight melanoma.
