A Proteomic Approach to the Tumor Microenvironment An outstanding issue in treating solid cancers is understanding the complexity of this pathological tissue. Solid tumors are comprised not only of the cancer cells, but they also contain immune cells, cells that form blood vessels and lymphatic vessels, fibroblasts, and the stem cells that form the fibroblasts … Read moreSingle-Cell Proteomics Shines Light on the Complexity of Immune Cells in Solid Tumors

Proteomics Improves Antigen Prediction

How will we benefit from being able to accurately predict the peptide antigens that the immune system can recognize? Vaccine development would be a major beneficiary of such knowledge (Figure 1). We could produce more effective and safer vaccines. We could develop vaccines for pathogens for which no vaccine is currently available. We could ensure … Read moreProteomics Improves Antigen Prediction

Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor Super Responders

Efforts are underway to identify the molecular reasons why some patients exhibit an enduring response to immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy. These patients have been called “exceptional” responders or “super” responders. Some patients that have cancers with a lot of DNA mutations (high mutational burden) are better responders to immune checkpoint therapy compared with patients that … Read moreImmune Checkpoint Inhibitor Super Responders
