Premalignant tumours composition and cell changes defined with single-cell analyses

A new study identified key changes in gene expression and tissue composition in premalignant tumours, providing potential targets for prevention, […]

The abscopal effect and B cells’ surprising role in treating hard to reach tumours

A new study in mice finds that B cells unexpectedly promote the therapeutic shrinking of breast cancer tumours, even when they are not the direct targets of local immunotherapy.  The […]

Cancer vaccine provokes a coordinated attack on tumours

A study in Nature describes a new type of cancer vaccine that works by obstructing a tactic used by tumours […]
