Cell-targeting to reverse cancer effects

Targeting of specific cells has been found to reverse the effects of cancer on the immune system.

In a study conducted by Curtin University, mice were used to determine whether the cancer-related deterioration of the immune system could be reduced by activating “macrophages”, a cell found in the immune system.

Researchers found this technique restored age-related and tumour-induced immune dysfunction, which will assist in treating cancer and mesothelioma.
