A new discovery could lead to immunotherapy that turns “cold tumors” into “hot tumors”.


Tumor cells produce proteins with tiny changes, even without prior changes in their DNA code: a phenomenon that has never been shown before and that is specifically seen in tumors. These proteins differ from their normal counterparts in that they can activate the human immune system. And that could provide us with new leads for new types of immunotherapy against cancer, in which “cold” tumors are made “hot.”
