The Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer (JITC) is the official journal of the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC). This open access, peer-reviewed journal not only serves as the global voice of the society, but also a targeted outlet for the publication of original research articles, literature reviews, position papers and discussion on all aspects of tumor immunology and cancer immunotherapy—from basic research to clinical application.
Today, more than ever before, the tremendous excitement in the field and the increased momentum brought about by the latest approvals of immunotherapy-based treatments in various cancer types has shown the clear need for the Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer, an outlet devoted to and created by today's leaders in the field.

JITC is indexed in six major indexing sources, including PubMed, PubMed Central, MEDLINE, the Directory of Open Access journals, Scopus, and Thomson Reuters’ Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). The ESCI is part of the robust Web and Science collection, the world’s largest compilation of research data, books, journals, proceedings, publications and patents.
As a way to thank the dedicated society members who tirelessly work to advance the science and ultimately to improve the lives of patients with cancer, SITC is pleased to offer society members waived article processing charges for manuscripts accepted through 2017.

Indicated below by a circular image near the author listings, the Altmetric Attention Score for research outputs provides an indicator of the amount of attention an article has received. The score is derived from an automated algorithm, and represents a weighted count of the amount of attention picked up for a research output. Learn more here.
This report is a summary of ‘New Cancer Immunotherapy Agents in Development’ program, which took place in association with the 31st Annual Meeting of the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC), on November 9, 2016 in National Harbor, Maryland. Presenters gave brief overviews of emerging clinical and pre-clinical immune-based agents and combinations, before participating in an extended panel discussion with multidisciplinary leaders, including members of the FDA, leading academic institutions and industrial drug developers, to consider topics relevant to the future of cancer immunotherapy...
Accumulating pre-clinical data indicate that the efficient induction of antigen-specific cytotoxic CD8+ T cells characterizing viral infections is caused by cross-priming where initially infected DCs produce an unique set of inflammatory factors that recruit and activate non-infected bystander DCs. Our DC-based immunotherapy concept is guided by such bystander view and accordingly, we have developed a cellular adjuvant consisting of pre-activated allogeneic DCs producing high levels of DC-recruiting and DC-activating factors. This concept...
