Stable MHC proteins for cancer immunotherapy: Innovation from Jacobs University facilitates novel treatment methods

In the treatment of cancer, the most promising innovation in the last years has been tumor immunotherapy. In the immunotherapy approach, which is now being tested in clinical trials, scientists and doctors ‘train’ the immune system of the patient to recognize the tumor and eliminate it, using – instead of drugs or surgery – the body’s own defences to overcome the disease.
