Tumor macrophage marker offers unique target for treatment

Macrophages are white blood cells that accumulate in tumors, where they aid cancer progression. Now scientists have identified a surface protein found only on the macrophages residing in tumors, exposing a target for precise tumor treatments. Most tumors contain macrophages, a type of immune cells, that aid tumor growth through…

Tumor on the heart: These symptoms point to heart cancer

A cardiac tumor is rare but dangerous Although heart diseases are for the most deaths, and cancer is the second, heart cancer is a very rare and little researched disease. Why the heart is so rarely affected by tumor disease, explain American heart specialists. The American heart organization American Heart…

Anticancer immunity through tumor antigen identification and conversion to DNA vaccines

Wistar scientists and collaborators demonstrated the utility of an optimized synthetic DNA vaccine platform for rapidly inducing immunity against unique combinations of tumor neoantigens. These results reveal a direct pathway to effectively tackling the tumor variability that presents enormous challenges for the development of effective immune strategies. This study, published…
