Newly discovered mechanism may restrict breast cancer growth
Charlotte Rolny and colleagues at the Department of Oncology-Pathology have discovered a new mechanism that could be the key to a new strategy to restrict breast cancer growth.
This mechanism means that the anti-tumor macrophages can be selectively expanded in the tumor while growth of tumorigenic macrophage are restricted.
In the study, the expansion of tumor-suppressing macrophages stimulated cytotoxic white blood cells, so called "killer cells", to kill breast tumor cells.
