Infographic Jan 18, 2019 | by Laura Elizabeth Lansdowne, Science Writer for Technology Networks
The tumor microenvironment (TME) consists of a complex and dynamic mixture of non-cancerous cells and molecules that surround the cancerous cells that comprise a tumor.
Tumor cells can interact with the non-cancerous cells in the TME, meaning they are able to influence and optimize their surroundings to promote growth, invasion and metastasis.

The immune system is essential to protect us from potentially harmful invaders, and when it weakens or fails it leaves our body vulnerable to attack. Swift responses are essential but equally important are targeted reactions, therefore all aspects of the immune response must be carefully co-ordinated.READ MORE
