This symposium was the fourth international meeting of the Association for Immunotherapy of Cancer (CIMT, Mainz, Germany), organized this year as a joint conference with “Strategies for Immune Therapy” (Würzburg, Germany). The scientific program covered various aspects of cancer immunotherapy, including the evaluation of target antigens in pre-clinical settings and in patients, several tumor escape mechanisms and approaches for improving immune responses. Both academic researchers and biotech companies were represented, illustrating the efforts to translate the acquired knowledge from bench to bedside. This report summarizes the content of selected lectures and posters and should give an overview on the progress and hurdles of current immunotherapeutical strategies.

Known and newly identified tumor-associated antigens for antibody (Ab)- and T-cell-based therapies were presented as well as various approaches to target candidate antigens in immunotherapy.
