Scientists watch armed immune cells fight cancer

Armed and tagged immune cells can be watched attacking tumours in mice in real time.
Armed and tagged immune cells can be watched attacking tumours in mice in real time. Lymphocyte cells were armed with T cell receptors which allowed them to detect and destroy… http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/research-medical-benefits/scientists-watch-armed-immune-cells-fight-cancer/

Cancer vaccine implant success in mice
