What was a miraculous mystery then is now hard scientific fact: immunotherapy is the cutting edge of cancer treatment, and a crucial breakthrough in the race to find the ultimate cure.

In THE BREAKTHROUGH, journalist Charles Graeber expertly traces the fascinating history of immuno-oncology and guides readers through the revolutionary scientific research bringing immunotherapy into the 21st century. As advances in the fields of cancer research and the human immune system continue to fuel a therapeutic arms race among biotech and pharmaceutical research centers around the world, the next step -- harnessing the wealth of new information into modern and more effective patient therapies -- is already well underway.


THE BREAKTHROUGH is the first book to address the game-changing science of cancer treatment through immunotherapy. It is the incredible true story of the race to find a cure, a dispatch from the life-changing world of oncological science, and a brave new chapter in our relationship with cancer.
