Beckman.com is conducting maintenance Saturday, September 19th and Sunday, September 20th. Parts of the site may have limited accessibility throughout the weekend. During this time, orders can still be placed by calling Client Services. We look forward to providing an improved customer experience. Beckman.com will return Monday, September 21st.
Current immunotherapeutic research has mainly centered upon understanding and manipulating cell- or molecular-based mechanisms. Cell-based immunotherapy focuses on augmenting the activity and/or potency of immune cells. This can be done by physically manipulating the cell population – for example, by selecting and expanding the most active phenotype, or by using genetic engineering to insert new receptors. Molecular-based immunotherapy methods can involve identifying an optimal combination of signaling molecules to boost in vivo immune function, using selective antibodies to bypass tumor evasion and mark tumor cells for immune effectors, or affixing cytotoxic agents to tumor-selective agents in order to directly induce cell death.1 Visit our expanded immunotherapy section in our resource center for more information.
