Interactions between cancer and immune cells via cytokine networks

Tumor-induced perturbations of cytokines and immune cell networks

Pr. Ruo-Pan Huang’s team has just published a review detailing the interactions between cancer and immune cells.

This overview describes the key cytokine signals, cell–cell signal networks in the tumor microenvironment during cancer diseases. It also demonstrates the power of antibody arrays and multiplex immunoassays as unique research tools to decipher cytokine networks during cancer and inflammation processes.
