A new study has found that the level of a person’s immune cells may provide an indication of whether they would benefit from chemotherapy in oropharyngeal cancer.
A team of our scientists at University College London have developed a potential new immunotherapy drug and caused another paradigm shift in our understanding of how cancer immunotherapy works.
Scientists working on the TRACERx project have mapped how the immune systems responds to lung tumours over time
There are many unanswered questions about how and why cancer spreads around the body. But one thing we do know is that only some cancers metastasise.
US researchers have found a link between the makeup of bacteria in the tumours of people with pancreatic cancer and how long they live.
Injecting immune cell stimulants directly into a tumour could help the immune system spot and attack cancer cells, according to new research in mice.
In this Science Surgery post Millie asks: ‘Why doesn’t the immune system attack cancer cells?’ The short answer is it does! But sometimes it needs a helping hand from exciting new treatments.
Scientists are turning to crime-mapping tech as a new way to look at cancer.
With two complex CAR T immunotherapies now approved on the NHS in England, we look at how the health service has had to react to these exciting new treatments.
