Pharmacological targeting of individual ErbB receptors elicits antitumor activity, but is frequently compromised by resistance leading to therapeutic failure. Here, we describe an immunotherapeutic approach that exploits prevalent and fundamental mechanisms by which aberrant upregulation of the ErbB network drives tumorigenesis. A chimeric antigen receptor(More)
Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) remains the most lethal gynecologic malignancy, underscoring the need for better therapies. Adoptive immunotherapy using genetically targeted T cells represents a promising new treatment for hematologic malignancies. However, solid tumors impose additional obstacles, including the lack of suitable targets for safe systemic(More)
Adoptive cell therapy using gene-modified T-cells has achieved impressive results in the treatment of B-cell malignancies. However, the development of similar strategies to treat solid tumors raises challenges with respect to tumor antigen selection and the achievement of efficient T-cell homing, survival and sustained effector function within the tumor(More)
BACKGROUND Globalisation is having profound impacts on health and healthcare. We solicited the views of a wide range of stakeholders in order to develop core global health competencies for postgraduate doctors. METHODS Published literature and existing curricula informed writing of seven global health competencies for consultation. A modified policy(More)
Despite several advances, 5-year survival in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) remains unchanged at only 50%. The commonest cause of death is locally advanced/recurrent disease. Consequently, there is an unmet need for new approaches to improve local control in HNSCC. T4 immunotherapy is an autologous cell therapy in which(More)
