Human VÎ³2Â VÎ´2-bearing T cells have recently received much attention in cancer immunotherapy. In this study, we conducted a phase I/II clinical trial of the adoptive transfer of Î³Î´ T cells to patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma.
Metabolism, Excretion, and Pharmacokinetics of Oral Brivanib in Patients with Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors
To evaluate the pharmacokinetics, mass balance, metabolism, routes and extent of elimination, and safety of a single oral dose of [(14)C]-labeled brivanib alaninate and the safety and tolerability of brivanib after multiple doses in patients with advanced or metastatic solid tumors.
The liver is an immunologically unique organ containing tolerogenic dendritic cells (DC) that maintain an immunosuppressive microenvironment. Although systemic IL-12 administration can improve responses to tumors, the effects of IL-12-based treatments on DC, in particular hepatic DC, remain incompletely understood.

Treatment with three relatively new "targeted" cancer drugs has been linked to a slightly elevated chance of fatal side effects.
Discovery of many genetic mutations within one cell may dash hopes for targeted treatments.
Therapeutic vaccines may prove both effective and directed as cancer treatments. One such product, being developed by Immatics Biotechnologies, is based on a selection of naturally presented tumour-associated peptides. Two versions are currently in the clinic IMA901 for renal cell carcinoma...
