Radiation and immunotherapy combination can destroy both primary and secondary tumors

Academics / General Science : Science Codex

Turin, Italy: Radiation therapy not only kills cancer cells, but also helps to activate the immune system against their future proliferation. However, this immune response is often not strong enough to be able to cure tumours, and e...

New mechanism activates the immune system against tumor cells

Academics / General Science : Science Codex

The body's defences detect and eliminate not only pathogens but also tumour cells. Natural killer cells (NK-Cells) are specifically activated by chemical messengers, the Cytokines, to seek and destroy tumour cells. Veronika Sexl and...

Brain tumours: Artificial stimulation of the immune system could mean less aggressive treatment

Academics / General Science : ScienceDaily: Science Society

Brain metastases are common secondary complications of other types of cancer, particularly lung, breast and skin cancer. The body’s own immune response in the brain is rendered powerless in the fight against these metastases by infl...

Nanoparticle 'alarm clock' tested to awaken immune systems put to sleep by cancer

Academics / General Science : ScienceDaily: Science Society

Researchers are exploring ways to wake up the immune system so it recognizes and attacks invading cancer cells. One pioneering approach uses nanoparticles to jumpstart the body’s ability to fight tumors. Nanoparticles are too small ...

Iron nanoparticles make immune cells attack cancer

Academics / General Science : Physorg: Nanotechnology

Stanford researchers accidentally discovered that iron nanoparticles invented for anemia treatment have another use: triggering the immune system's ability to destroy tumor cells.
