T-cells could be made into better cancer killers by increasing their protein production

Researchers have developed a technique to quantify protein production in immune cells known as T-cells, which typically target and kill cancer cells. However, when near a tumor, most T cells produce little protein and lose their cancer-fighting ability, and the new technique could help clarify why. Interventions could then be developed to restore protein production and allow T cells in the vicinity of tumors to become better cancer killers.
