New mechanism activates the immune system against tumor cells

It is currently one challenge in cancer research to activate the body’s natural defenses to eliminate tumor cells. A research team has now discovered with her team a surprising new function for the signalling molecule STAT1 in immune cells. This previously unknown feature could pave the way to a new therapeutic approach to immunological cancer therapy….
