What looking beyond the tumor microenvironment has taught us about immunotherapy

Jolien Sweere, PhD April 6, 2023

About the Webinar

Immunotherapies work solely by activating immune cells within the tumor – or do they? In this webinar, Dr. Jolien Sweere walks us through a number of scientific studies published within the last 6 years showing that immune responses outside the tumor are necessary for effective immunotherapy. She also highlights more recent work, including work done by Teiko Bio, that found peripheral immune features associated with improved clinical outcomes and presentation of immune related adverse events.
