Title of thesis for Master or Doctor of Health Sciences


Immune cancer treatment including immune checkpoint blockers is focused on as the fourth remedy in cancer therapies. However, there are many cases that have shown resistance against several tumor therapies. The causes are immune escape, proliferation of immune suppressor cells, existence of cancer stem cells, and cancer microenvironment including adaptation to low oxygen. Therefore, we study this to disclose the mechanisms of getting therapies or multidrug resistance against cancers and expect that our research will help the management of cancer patients.
