Cancer research expands body’s own immune system to kill tumors

Scientists are working to expand the way they have made immune cells fight tumors from a small handful of cancers to a wide array of them. Scientists are hoping advances…

New approach for targeted cancer immunotherapy

Cancer immunotherapies make use of the ability of the immune system to attack cancer cells: they unleash the killer function of T cells, which then attack and…

Researchers develop high-performance cancer vaccine using novel microcapsules

Scientists from the Institute of Process Engineering (IPE) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have developed a new therapeutic tumor vaccine based on…

Potential pivot for a more effective cancer immunotherapy

The focus is on the messenger substance interleukin-33 (IL-33). If the production of IL-33 in regulatory T cells in the tumor and in the immediate vicinity of…

Novel combination of antibodies leads to significant improvement in cancer immunotherapy

In recent years, immunotherapies against cancer have raised great hopes. These novel therapies recruit the body’s immune system to destroy cancerous tissue.

NUS scientist designs 'express courier service' for immune cells

Immunotherapy is a promising cancer treatment that uses genetically modified immune cells to fight cancer. It can be used as a primary treatment or in…

Expanding the limits of personalized medicine with high-performance computing

Sound like wishful thinking? The first steps towards this vision have been undertaken by a multi-institution research collaboration that includes Jonathan Ozik…

Stable MHC proteins for cancer immunotherapy: Innovation from Jacobs University facilitates novel treatment methods

A Jacobs University work group, led by Prof. Sebastian Springer, professor for Biochemistry and Cell Biology, has recently published two papers in the journal…

Bacteria engineered as Trojan horse for cancer immunotherapy

The emerging field of synthetic biology–designing new biological components and systems–is revolutionizing medicine. Through the genetic programming of…

A new molecular player involved in T cell activation

During T-cell activation, a molecular complex known as the microtubule-organizing center (MTOC) moves to a central location on the surface of the T-cell.
