Discovery of an antibody that stimulates the immune system to eliminate cancer cells.

MedicalXpress, 16/11/2023

The researchers developed a new antibody, named Z10, that frees SLAMF7 from CD47, thereby augmenting elimination of tumor cells. When combined with other agents Z10 is highly effective against cancer cells expressing SLAMF7, at least in miceā€¦

Scientists identify T-cell differentiation nodes to improve cancer killing.

ScienceDaily, 15/11/2023

Scientists mapped the gene regulatory networks responsible for progressive differentiation states of tumor-infiltrating T cells, using a technology known as single-cell CRISPR screening to knock out or genetically perturb multiple genes potentially involved

Selpercatinib slows progression of RET-positive lung, medullary thyroid cancers.

National Cancer Institute, 15/11/2023

The new trial provided evidence that selpercatinib can shrink tumors in the brain in people with NSCLC. Twenty-nine participants in the trial had measurable brain metastases. During the study, these metastases shrank in 82% of those who received selpercatinib, compared with 58% of those who received chemotherapy...
