CAR T-cell treatments, which are specifically designed to target cancer cells, has heralded a new era in the treatment of human cancers, particularly hematologic malignancies. But all too frequently, they exhibit a disconcerting characteristic derived from the immune system's own cells: a sh
According to new research, therapies may cause lymph nodes to produce tumour-fighting T cells.

A new study led by Bruno Silva Santos, group leader and vice-director at the Instituto de Medicina Molecular Joo Lobo Antunes (iMM; Portugal), and published in the scientific journal Cell Reports discovered that T cells influence the transfer of maternal microbiota during birth and nursing,
CAR T-cell therapy, a sort of cancer treatment in which the immune system's T cells are trained to attack tumour cells, was found to be effective in mice with ovarian cancer, according to a study.

According to a study, CAR T-cell therapy, a type of cancer treatment in which the immune system's T cells are trained to attack tumour cells, is successful in mice with ovarian cancer.
Some cancers respond well to immunotherapy, a medication therapy that prompts the immune system to target tumours, although results against lung cancer have been conflicting.
When HIV patients get antiviral medication (ART), their viral levels are reduced to the point that a conventional blood test cannot detect the virus. However, once ART is discontinued, detectable HIV resurfaces, infecting new cells. The cells that release the virus to re-ignite the infection
