A Pan-Cancer View of the Immune Landscape in the Tumor Microenvironment via RNA and their Potential for Biomarkers in Clinical Trials 

Immune-based biomarkers for measurement of tumor microenviornment (TME)
Author: Wendell Jones

Immune-based biomarkers are now commonly available when measuring the tumor microenvironment (TME), although many are based on immuno-histochemistry methods which sometimes have drawbacks: specificity, quantitation, variety. In addition, next-gen RNA sequencing and focused RNA assays are now much more accessible (for example, processing formalin-fixated material has a much higher degree of success) and are commonly employed in clinical trials to measure tumor activity and immune cell content in the TME.
