Cancer immunotherapy and cancer immunology, cell-to-cell communication between cancer and immune cells. Nanosized biological particles (exosomes) isolated from cancer cells and/or immune cells. A variety of anti-cancer immunoregulating targets and their therapeutic effects, e.g. CTLA-4, PD1/PD-L1, LAG3.
