URGENT - Referrals to Oncology Literature/Researchers

Can anyone refer me to applications of immunology research to
squamous-cell (cervical) cancer, especially recent or leading-edge
projects or papers?

I have a personal interest;  a friend-of-a-friend had got about
18 months to go with this type of cancer, widespread and rapid.
She's had all the rad treatment she can take, surgery has just
been given up as hopeless, and chemo is looking like a last
and probably useless (and miserable) avenue.

This is a last-ditch situation; any recent developments in
biotechnology which tinker with the immune system to tackle
this particular monster will be of great interest to her and her 
friends.  It doesn't matter if they are tentative, inconclusive,
etc.  We have very little to lose at this point.

Any references will be received with gratitude.
