How Nanoparticles Boost Immunity Against Cancer

Cancer cells are the body's own cells, so T cells do not recognize them as abnormal. Nanoparticles alter T cells to fight against cancer cells. A research team from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center has designed nanoparticles that are biodegradable and which can be used to modify immune cells, to both identify as well as to destroy cells that are cancerous, when these cells are still within the body.
