Brief description We recently found that chemotherapy has beneficial effects on the immune response against cancer rather than ill effects. Here we want to exploit this positive effect by combining different chemotherapeutics with immune-stimulating treatments in laboratory models. These studies will result in a better understanding of how chemotherapy influences the immune system, and may also result in new combinations that improve the effectiveness of cancer therapy.
