Live coverage of the immune system at work

Researchers have developed a new technique to safely mark T-cells for non-invasive in vivo imaging to better understand what happens during immune reactions in the body. The immune system’s T-cells are a key starting point for researchers developing immunotherapies against cancer and autoimmune diseases. T-cells are constantly on the move throughout the body, checking for invading pathogens and diseased cells. If any of these structures which fit the T-cells’ specific receptors like a key fits the right lock — then the T-cell will proliferate and set off a series of signals, starting the process of eradicating the diseased cell. —> Read More Here
