Project title: Defining the immune landscape of NETs – towards rational combination therapy
Tim Meyer, MD, PhD UCL Cancer Institute, University College London
- Status: Completed
- Year(s): 2015
- Research Type: Translational
- Primary Tumor Site: Other
- Area of Inquiry: Immune environment
The status of the immune ‘landscape’ of neuroendocrine tumors before therapy and after modulation by therapy is unknown. The proposed study will analyze reactive T cell subsets including characterization of the regulatory factors limiting effective immune-mediated tumor elimination. This will inform the development of a truly personalized medicine approach capable of inducing tumor regression and durable disease control.
