About the book

Cancer targeted therapies, including cancer immunotherapy, are currently considered mainstream medical treatments for several types of malignancies. The success of these treatments relies on innovative approaches to specifically interfere with molecular targets that are involved in the growth, vascular and oxygen supply, progression, and spread of the malignant cells, or to bypass the tumor evasion of the immune system utilizing the latest advances in cancer vaccines development, formulation, and delivery.

This book will present an up-to-date overview of novel cancer targeted therapies and cancer personalized immunotherapy approaches, including Targeted Cancer Therapy, Biomarker Discovery, Targeted Therapies Clinical Trials, Molecular Medicine, Pharmacogenomics, Genomic Profiling, Oncolytic Viruses, Antibody Drug Conjugates (ADCs), Antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC), Monoclonal Antibodies, Bi-specific Antibodies, cGMP Antibody Manufacturing, Chimeric Antigen Receptors (CAR-T), Tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs), Adoptive T-cell Transfer, Cell-based Cancer Vaccines, Peptide-based Cancer Vaccines, Vaccine Delivery, Dendritic Cells, Natural Killer Cells, T-Lymphocytes, Tumor Antigens, Immunotherapy Monitoring Biomarkers, Graft vs. Tumor effect, Small-Molecule Drugs, Anti-Angiogenesis molecules, Hormonal Cancer Treatments, Combination Cancer Immunotherapy, and Cancer Immunotherapy Side Effects.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dajana Pemac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
