It is increasingly acknowledged that breast cancer can be an immunogenic disease. Immunogenicity appears to differ between subtypes. For instance, in triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) and HER2-positive breast cancer tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) are prognostic and predictive for response to chemotherapy containing anthracyclines, but in other subtypes they are not. Preclinical evidence suggests important immune based mechanisms of conventional chemotherapeutics, in particular… CONTINUE READING
