Description

Topics for discussion will include:

This meeting is designed as a forum to critically assess the factors that are limiting the clinical development of cytokines as therapeutic agents. It will cover the successes and failures of recombinant cytokines as therapeutic agents for treating human diseases, including various cancers and autoimmune diseases, and will provide a forum to review the scientific and clinical basis of both successful and unsuccessful attempts to develop cytokines as therapeutic agents. The goal is to identify areas for improvement and to coordinate, develop and disseminate novel approaches to current scientific hurdles that are limiting the development of many cytokine products.
Improved methods for identifying disease targets:
- Alternative methods for enhancing and targeting cytokine delivery
- Physicochemical modification of cytokines to prolong their bioavailability
