  • The Introduction of Immunotoxin

    What is immunotoxin? Malignant tumors are a kind of serious diseases that endanger human health. With the deterioration of human living environment and the increase of social pressure, the incidence and mortality of malignant tumors are gradually increasing. Surgery is the main treatment ...
  • Introduction to vaccine types and differences (part two)

    Live-attenuated vaccine This type of viral vaccine has more than 90% efficacy and its protection usually lasts for many years. Its outstanding advantage is that the pathogen produces an antigenic stimulus in the host replication, the amount, nature and location of the antigen are similar to th...
  • Introduction to Tumor Immunotherapy—Part One

    Under normal circumstances, the immune system can identify and remove tumor cells in the tumor microenvironment, but in order to survive and grow, tumor cells can adopt different strategies to inhibit the body's immune system, unable to kill tumor cells normally, called immune escape. In order to be...
  • The new chapter in tumor immunotherapy—immunological checkpoint

    Because of its significant survival benefit, tumor immunotherapy has become a new effective treatment option for cancer followed by surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and targeted therapy. As one of the methods for tumors, immunological checkpoint inhibitors have been approved for the treatment of ...
  • Some Key Genes You Should Know About Cancer

    Genes are all the nucleotide sequences needed to produce a polypeptide chain or functional RNA. Genes support the basic structure and performance of life, and store all the information of life's race, blood type, gestation, growth, apoptosis and other processes. The interdependence of environment an...
  • New Treatment for Skin Cancer - Skin Cancer Vaccine (Part Two)

    Melanoma Melanoma is the most aggressive malignant tumor in skin cancer. In the past 20 years, the incidence rate worldwide has risen sharply, increasing at a rate of 3.1% per year. The incidence rate in China is relatively low, but in recent years, the growth has accelerated, with about 20,000...
  • Immunotherapy for tumors (Section One)

    Unlike previous surgical excision, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and gene targeted therapy, cancer immunotherapy is aimed at a patient own immune system to fight cancer. In recent years, monoclonal antibodies against immune checkpoints have created a revolution in clinical oncology, ...
  • An overview of new progress in stem cell culture manufacturing

    Nature Materials: "squeezing" cells into stem cells DOI: 10.1038/nmat4536 Scientists at the EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland, have recently developed a new method to help cells become available stem cells. This approach involves the use of gels to "squeeze" cells, paving the way for large-scale p...
  • The Increasingly Important Role of Lentivirus Packaging

    Abstract: Recently, studies indicate that many diseases like tumors, are closely related to genetic abnormalities. As a result, gene therapy has become a crucial way of clinical treatment of diseases. In order to achieve efficient transfer or transfection of genes, finding suitable gene thera...
