|Anti-Tumor Immune Response
Using a novel imaging technique called transparent tumor tomography that three-dimensionally visualizes the tumor microenvironment at a single cell resolution, researchers obtained this image from a mouse model for HER2-positive breast cancer. Shown are cytotoxic T cells (CD3 in yellow; CD8 in red; , CD31 in blue) attacking the tumor after treatment with radiation and a PD-L1 immune checkpoint blockade therapy. New knowledge about the mechanism of inducing anti-tumor immune responses may lead to better treatments.
