New Findings Could Help Develop New Immunotherapies Against Cancer

NK cells, or natural killer cells, play an important role in the body's defenses against cancer and various infections. Now, in a joint project, researchers at Lund University in Sweden, the University of Oxford and Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm have mapped how the different steps of the maturation process of these supercells from blood-producing stem cells in the bone marrow are regulated: knowledge which is crucial for the development of new immunotherapies against cancer.
