Cancer-fighting Cells Get a Boost from Oxygen Starvation Treatment

Cancerous tumor tissue under a microscope: T cells grown under low oxygen conditions (green) and regular T cells (purple) show similar distribution patterns vis-à-vis blood vessels (red). Right: The content of granzyme B, a cell-killing enzyme (red), is much higher in T cells grown under low oxygen conditions (top) than in regular T cells (bottom).
