Advances in immunotherapy for osteosarcoma have shown promising results, with the use of monoclonal antibodies and immune checkpoint inhibitors. These strategies are aimed at targeting specific molecules and pathways involved in tumour immune evasion and promoting anti-tumour immune responses. Other emerging immunotherapeutic approaches include autophagy and pyroptosis induction, chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy, gadolinium-bisphosphonate nanoparticles and dendritic cell-based vaccines. Continued research into these emerging treatment strategies is essential for developing effective therapies for patients with high-grade osteosarcoma.
