Nanomedicine for Cancer Immunotherapy
Cancer Immunotherapy is a therapy used to treat cancer patients that involves or uses components of the immune system, including antibodies (e.g. anti-PD1/PD-L1), vaccines and T cell infusions, which is a revolutionary technology in oncology. Cancer immunotherapy has made great progress in the past decades and it is thought to be an effective strategy for achieving long-term success in cancer treatment. Despite some clinical successes, some issues, including low patient response rates, adverse effects/immune-related toxicities, and acquired immune resistance need to be solved. The development of new nanoparticles, including lipid nanoparticles, nano-sized metal-organic frameworks, polymeric nanoparticles/micelles/nanogels, inorganic nanoparticles and cell membrane derived systems, have offered effective solutions for targeting delivery of the cargoes, boosting antitumor immune responses, sensitizing tumors to immunotherapy, and/or reducing adverse effects. Nanomedicines can also remodel the tumor immune-microenvironment, induce immunogenic cell death(ICD) of cancer cells to improve cancer immunotherapy and even realize sequential release of different drugs to induce cascade immune response. Furthermore, the combination of nanotechnology and immunotherapy offers new perspectives on strengthening antitumor immune responses. For example, clinical trials have proven the advantages of the treatment strategy of albumin paclitaxel nanoparticle-PD-L1 monoclonal antibody combination therapy.
This Article Collection aims to show recent progress in cancer immunotherapy by using nanotechnology. We hope this Collection can help researchers to deepen the mechanisms by which tumor cells evade immunity, reveal how nanomedicine can strengthen the anti-tumor immune-response, and discuss how nanomedicine overcomes the challenges and the critical limitations of cancer immunotherapy. We also hope to offer a platform to inspire future directions in this field.
