    Missing BAP1 gene associated with immunosuppressive molecules in uveal melanoma

    Missing BAP1 gene associated with immunosuppressive molecules in uveal melanoma 1

    Credit: University of Turku Immunotherapies using immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI) have dramatically improved cancer survival in the last decade, resulting in the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2018. Unfortunately, a significant number of cancer patients are refractory to ICI or relapse after these treatments by developing resistance mechanisms. Metastatic UM …

      New study discovers inflammatory molecules controlling capillary loss

      New study discovers inflammatory molecules controlling capillary loss 3

      Many diseases arise from abnormalities in our capillaries, tiny exquisitely branching blood vessel networks that play a critical role in tissue health. Researchers have learned a lot about the molecular communication underlying capillary formation and growth, but much less is understood about what causes these critical regulators of normal tissue …
