    Tracking down resistant cancer cells

    In multiple myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow, relapse almost always occurs after treatment. Initially, most patients respond well to therapy. However, as the disease progresses, resistant cancer cells spread in the bone marrow, with fatal consequences for the patients. Scientists at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), Heidelberg University Hospital (UKHD) and the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) in Heidelberg have now used single-cell sequencing to elucidate how myeloma cells with different genetic characteristics change in interaction with the surrounding immune cells in a patient during relapse. The results point to new approaches to counteract relapse.

    Who benefits from immunotherapy against hepatitis B?

    Study by CiiM and MHH investigates biomarkers that can enable prognosis on therapy success. & It is estimated that more than 250 million people worldwide are chronically infected with the hepatitis B virus. Cytotoxic T cells and T helper cells play an important role in fighting viral infections. The constant activation of these immune cells in chronically infected patients leads to cell exhaustion in the long term. However, their activability is a prerequisite to benefit ...
