Pancreatic cancer loses viral defenses when talking with supporting cells

20 abril 2015

Researchers have unlocked a way to make pancreatic cancer cells more vulnerable to cancer-killing viruses, known as oncolytic viruses. The scientists have discovered how they can exploit the communication, or cross-talk, between pancreatic cancer and a specific cell type that supports the tumor. They found that this cross-talk weakens the ability of both cell types to fight off cancer-fighting viruses.
