Trinity scientists make discovery on cancers and the immune system

Scientists from the Smurfit Institute of Genetics made the discovery, which will be published in the journal Molecular Cell


Trinity scientists have discovered how certain cancers send a “wound-healing” message from tumour cells to hijack the immune system for their benefit, tricking it into helping rather than harming them.

The immune system primarily protects us from infection, but cells

Trinity scientists develop new option for targeted cancer therapy

The research will help to reduce side effects as well as improving diagnosis

NEWSTrinity scientists have discovered a new therapy that will target cancer cells with improved specificity than current options.

The researchers have demonstrated that a class of naturally occurring enzymes, named glycosidases, are heavily overexpressed in tumour tissue and can be …
