Researchers at Salk Institute have uncovered a key insight about how oxidized fat molecules inhibit T-cells from killing cancer cells. Their recent discovery, which was published in the peer-reviewed journal Immunity, discusses ways to make sure the immune system can effectively fight cancer by “reducing the oxidative lipid damage in killer T-cells,” according to a Salk news release. The research can help with the development of immunotherapies for cancer. Read more…
