Immune ‘cloaking’ in cancer cells

14th September 2020

Researchers have created a mathematical model that can determine the impact of the immune system on tumour evolution. The information gained from using this model may be able to be used to predict whether immunotherapy is likely to be effective for a patient’s cancer, helping to guide treatment decisions.
