New ’don’t eat me’ signal may provide basis for cancer therapies
Cancer cells are known to protect themselves using proteins that tell immune cells not to attack them. Stanford researchers have discovered a new "don't eat me" signal, and blocking it may make cancer cells vulnerable to attack by the immune system. Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have discovered a new signal that cancers seem to use to evade detection and destruction by the immune system. The scientists have shown that blocking this signal in mice implanted with human cancers allows immune cells to attack the cancers.
