These include melanoma, a potentially deadly type of skin cancer. But while tumors shrink or even disappear in some people given immunotherapy, others have no response at all. Researchers have been trying to understand the factors that affect in...

Cancer cells drain energy from immune cells
https://www.nih.gov/news-events/nih-research-matters/cancer-cells-drain-energy-immune-cells

Dec 7th, 2021 - Cancer cells must evade the immune system to grow and spread. One way they do so is by presenting proteins on their surfaces that dampen the ability of immune cells to kill them. A type of cancer therapy called immune checkpoint inhibition blocks the interaction of these proteins with immune cells. This allows the immune cells to more efficiently kill the cancer. But this treatment doesn’t work...

Researchers have been interested in the potential of harnessing b...

Understanding “exceptional responders” to cancer treatment
https://www.nih.gov/news-events/nih-research-matters/understanding-exceptional-responders-cancer-treatment

Dec 8th, 2020 - Chemotherapy is among the most widely used treatments for cancer. These treatments use drugs to stop the growth of cancer cells.

Past studies have mostly been done in older adults. It hasn’t bee...
