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 JITC, an outlet devoted to and created by today's leaders in the field.

The Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer (JITC) received its first impact factor of 8.374 on June 26, 2018. JITC’s impact factor ranks in the top 8 percent of all journals published in the categories of oncology and immunology.
Published in the annual Journal Citation Reports (JCR), the impact factor is a calculation determined on the number of 2017 citations accumulated for JITC manuscripts published in 2015 and 2016. Other journal metrics for JITC can be found on the journal website.
JITC is indexed in six major indexing sources, including PubMed, PubMed Central, MEDLINE, the Directory of Open Access journals, Scopus, and Clarivate Analytics' Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE). The SCIE is part of the robust Web and Science collection, the world’s largest compilation of research data, books, journals, proceedings, publications and patents.

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.
The success of agents that reverse T-cell inhibitory signals, such as anti-PD-1/PD-L1 therapies, has reinvigorated cancer immunotherapy research. However, since only a minority of patients respond to single-agent therapies, methods to test the potential anti-tumor activity of rational combination therapies are still needed. Conventional murine xenograft models have been hampered by their immune-compromised status; thus, we developed a hematopoietic humanized mouse model, hu-CB-BRGS, and used it to study anti-tumor human immune responses to triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) cell line and patient-derived colorectal cancer (CRC) xenografts (PDX)...
The development of memory responses is an evolutionary function of the adaptive immune system. We propose that for the immune system to populate the memory compartment with the best-suited CD8 T cells it utilizes a process of certification or molecular accreditation mediated through Natural Killer Group 2D (NKG2D). This process of certification assures that the memory compartment is filled with CD8 T cells that have demonstrated their ability to kill their cognate targets through a two-step process that utilizes T cell receptor (TCR) and NKG2D signaling...
