Scientists in Australia have discovered immune cells that have the ability to inhibit the growth of melanoma (one type of skin cancer), allowing them to offer immunotherapy based on that type.
Researchers at the Peter Doherty Institute in Melbourne discovered that cells called TRM / T could regulate tumors in mice throughout their lives.
Using a microscope, researcher Simon Park could see these immune cells in the skin and stop the growth of melanocytes on her way, and the latter could be seen in the skin.
Patients recovering from this type of cancer run the risk of recurrence after years of treatment, according to the institute in a statement.
Park said the study confirms that the removal of these immune cells again leads to the proliferation of cancer cell growth.
She explained that these cells can be used to enhance the ability of the body's immunity to fight the disease.
