Immunology: Channelling potassium to fight cancer

K. George Chandy, Raymond S. Norton

Research output: Contribution to journalShort SurveyOtherpeer-review

Abstract

Potassium released from dying tumour cells has now been found to suppress the
activity of T cells of the immune system. Enhancing the removal of potassium
from T cells restores their ability to attack cancer. See Letter p.539
