Cancer Res. 2011 Jul 1;71(13):4338-43. doi: 10.1158/0008-5472.CAN-11-0717. Epub 2011 Jun 28.


The third in a series of AACR conferences, entitled "Tumor Immunology: Basic and Clinical Advances," was held in Miami Beach, Florida from November 30 to December 3, 2010. The overall objective of this meeting was to discuss rapid developments in the understanding of basic principles of antitumor immunity and strategies for increasing the success rate of cancer immunotherapy. The key findings that emerged from the meeting included (i) that integrated approaches are required for the development of effective cancer immunotherapies and (ii) attention should be on multiple cellular and molecular components and their broader networks rather than on a single pathway or cell type.
