Scientists are increasingly trying to use the body’s own immune system to fight cancer. A new study by the University of Bonn and research institutions in Australia and Switzerland now shows the strategies tumor cells use to evade this attack. The method developed for this work contributes to a better understanding of the “arms race” between immune defense and disease. The results could help to improve modern therapeutic approaches. They have been published in “Immunity”.
