IMMUNOTHERAPY ADVANCES AGAINST CANCER


LA INMUNOTERAPIA AVANZA CONTRA EL CÁNCER

In a breakthrough that opens the way to improving immunotherapies against cancer, researchers at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) led by Antoni Ribas have discovered why some tumors become resistant to treatment. According to the results presented online in the journal The New England Journal of Medicine, immunotherapy drugs push some cancers to evolve to escape the attack of the immune system. Thus, an arms race between cancer cells and immune cells is triggered so that they prime them. More information.

Oncological diseases were responsible in 2012 for the death of 102,762 people in our country. A figure only surpassed by that associated with cardiovascular diseases and which is mainly explained by the inability of the human immune system to eradicate tumors. In fact, the immune system is in many situations unable not only to fight against tumor cells, but even to recognize them. However, as a new study led by researchers at the Dutch Cancer Institute (NKI) in Amsterdam shows, there is a possible solution for our immune cells to identify tumors as they are: using a 'borrowed' immune system.

CONTAMINATION INCREASES THE MORTALITY OF ALL TYPES OF CANCER, NOT ONLY LUNG CANCER


LA CONTAMINACIÓN AUMENTA LA MORTALIDAD DE TODOS LOS TIPOS DE CÁNCER, NO SOLO EL DE PULMÓN

Pollution is, rather than harmful to health, directly fatal. Not in vain, this air pollution is responsible every year for the death of more than 25,000 people in our country alone. In fact, the inhalation of particles in suspension with a diameter not exceeding 2.5 microns - PM2,5, which are considered the best indicator of urban pollution and whose small size poses a greater risk to the health of humans - causes diseases such as, among others, cardiovascular, respiratory and cancer. In fact, a new study led by researchers at the University of Birmingham (UK) warns that each increase of 10 micrograms per cubic meter of air at PM2.5 levels leads to a 22% increase in the risk of mortality by any Type cancer in the population over 65 years. A very important aspect to keep in mind given that, to date, 1 in 3 Spaniards are forced to breathe contaminated air.
