The Breakthrough

The Breakthrough

Immunotherapy and the Race to Cure Cancer

Bestselling author of The Good Nurse, Charles Graeber details the discovery of cancer’s secret weakness, and how a new generation of scientists finally cracked the code on how the human immune system can fight — and beat — the disease.

One hundred years ago, physicians marveled at what appeared to be patients with bacterial infections spontaneously being cured of deadly tumors. 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.
