Suicide Handshakes Kill Precursor T Cells that Pose Autoimmune Dangers

Georgia Institute of Technology

The mechanisms that trigger the elimination of T cells that pose autoimmune dangers work very mechanically via physical forces. Nascent T cells must loosen their grip on human antigens within a reasonable time, in order to advance and defend the body. But if the nascent T cells, thymocytes, grip the human antigens too tightly, the immune cells must die. Here's how the grip of death works.

Radiation therapy cuts low risk of recurrence by nearly three-fourths for patients with “good risk” breast cancer

American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO)

A subset of patients with low-risk breast cancer is highly unlikely to see cancer return following breast conservation surgery but can lower that risk even further with radiation therapy, finds a new long-term clinical trial report. These 12-year follow-up data from the only prospective, randomized trial to compare recurrence outcomes after treatment for low-risk ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) were presented last week at the 60th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO).
