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.

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.
Immune checkpoints play important roles in immune regulation, and blocking immune checkpoints on the cell membrane is a promising strategy in the treatment of cancer. Based on this, monoclonal antibodies are having much rapid development, such as those against CTLA-4 (cytotoxic T lymphocyte antigen 4) and PD-1 (programmed cell death protein 1).But the cost of preparation of monoclonal antibodies is too high and the therapeutic effect is still under restrictions. Recently, a series of soluble immune checkpoints have been found such as sCTLA-4 (soluble CTLA-4) and sPD-1 (soluble PD-1). They are functional parts of membrane immune checkpoints produced in different ways and can be secreted by immune cells...
Poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase inhibitors (PARPi) prevent single-stranded DNA repair. Olaparib is a PARPi approved for the treatment of BRCA mutant ovarian and breast carcinoma. Emerging clinical data suggest a benefit of combining olaparib with immunotherapy in prostate cancer patients both with and without somatic BRCA mutations...
