Kartierung der Immunzellen beim Nierenkrebs

Forschende der Universität Zürich haben Millionen von Immunzellen in Tumorproben von Patienten mit Nierenzellkarzinom einzeln analysiert – und präsentieren nun erstmals einen immunologischen Atlas der Tumorumgebung. Dieser weist möglichen Weiterentwicklungen von Immuntherapien den Weg. Diese Studie wurde unterstützt durch das SystemsX.ch Transfer Project (TF) Foes or Friends? und das SystemsX.ch Medical Research and Development Project (MRD) MetastasiX.
