The Immune System and Cancer
Listicle Sep 23, 2019 | By Joanna Owens, PhD.
There has been an acceleration in our understanding of how cancer evades the immune system, and an explosion in new therapeutics that re-configure the immune system to mount a powerful anticancer response.
In this list, we highlight:
- the impact of aging on cancer development
- how tumors evade the immune system
- the current and future picture for “immunotherapy” cancer treatments
As biology presents ever-more challenging targets, those in the drug discovery field are pushing ahead with new tools to design or discover drugs that have optimal kinetics. But how familiar are you with the key terms used by scientists performing kinetics-directed drug design and discovery? Here, we have compiled a list of key definitions for your reference.READ MORE
