What happens during immunotherapy in a body?

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center boasts a leading immunologist – Nobel Prize winner Dr. James P. Allison. In 2018, Allison was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine along with Tasuku Honjo for his research into cancer therapy by inhibition of negative immune regulation.

The Anderson Cancer Center has now released an exciting film that explains how immunotherapy works, how T cells and APCs act in concert and how immunotherapy can help patients if the cancer recurs. It is inspiring and educational at the same time.

Allison is currently researching modulation of the immune system through manipulation of the various messengers. As part of this, he is also addressing how these procedures can be combined with conventional chemotherapy.

Looking forward to his new enriching results!
