New screening method identifies potential anticancer compounds that reawaken T cells

Scientists have developed a method for rapidly discovering potential cancer-treating compounds that work by resurrecting anti-tumor activity in immune cells called T cells. Cancerous tumors often thrive because they render T cells dysfunctional or ‚exhausted.‘ The new method uncovers medicinal compounds that can restore the function of these T cells, making cancers vulnerable to them again.
