New checkpoint target boosts immunotherapies against solid tumors in mice
The human immune system can be a powerful weapon in halting the spread of cancer, leading to long-term remission. However, many tumors find ways to protect themselves by switching off the immune response. Scientists have discovered a new way to reactivate T cells to attack solid tumors and boost existing therapies in mice, according to research published in Cancer Discovery on March 8. Read More
