Programme Details

Development of immune-modulators for preventing immune suppression by cancer-associated T-cells. Cancer is a major area of unmet clinical need. Immunotherapies to treat cancer were voted the breakthrough of year, 2013, by Science magazine. T-cells are highly specific, and extremely potent, and could be used to target cancer with minimal side effects. However, suppressive T-cell responses can halt cancer reactivity. The soluble molecules and monoclonal antibodies that we will explore in this study will have therapeutic potential for cancer that may address some of the shortcomings of current treatments.
