Cancer is still the main cause of death despite the development of many treatment strategies, including extensive radiation and chemotherapy. Clinical and research results from animal test have shown that, besides viruses, bacteria and parasites, the T-cell system can also recognize malignant abnormal cells and is able to destroy those. Especially CD8+ T-cells (cytotoxic T lymphocytes, CTLs) can cause responses of tumor repulsion by the recognition of antigens that are presented on the cell surface by Major Histocompatibility Complex Class I molecules (MHC, in humans HLA Class I). This invention offers the application of HLAindependent recognition of tumorassociated antigens for diagnosis, therapy and prevention of melanoma and other tumor types. Two antigens are presented that can be recognized by CTLs independently of HLA and whose application in cancer immune therapy will unlock new therapy alternatives. [Reference HMZ077]

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...
The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...
Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
