Breakthrough as Uppsala University discover structures in brain cancer patients found to help fight tumors

SWEDEN – Researchers at Uppsala University have discovered lymph node-like structures close to the tumor in brain cancer patients, where immune cells can be activated to attack the tumor. In the study now published in the journal Nature Communications, the researchers describe their discovery of structures similar to lymph nodes in the brain where T lymphocytes(major components of the adaptive immune system that kill infected host cells) could be activated. The research was conducted on glioma- bearing mice and showed that the formation of tertiary lymphoid structures (TLS), ectopic lymphoid…
