• Breast Cancer Associated Immune Infiltrates


Product Description
Breast cancer could be a potential target for immunotherapy. However, exact mechanistic links between breast cancer infiltrating immune cells (and the associated inflammation) and carcinogenesis are largely un-addressed. Although several researchers across the globe are investigating breast cancer associated immune cell densities, it is important to delineate/characterize immune cell densities in our own population as HLA polymorphism could lead to different immune make up of the tumour micro-environment. Data presented in this book describe various immune cell densities in Breast Cancer micro-environment. These data could be exploited to further understand the underlying mechanisms of breast carcinogenesis as well as to identify novel therapeutic targets. Based on the findings presented in this book, further experiments could be designed to better understand the role of each immune infiltrate. In summary, we have characterized immune cell densities in breast cancer micro-environment in Pakistani patients. This could lay foundation for further experiments in order to identify molecules of diagnostic, therapeutic and prognostic significance.

#465 How The Nose Knows
We've all got a nose but how does it work? Why do we like some smells and not others, and why can we all agree that some smells are good and some smells are bad, while others are dependant on personal or cultural preferences? We speak with Asifa Majid, Professor of Language, Communication and Cultural Cognition at Radboud University, about the intersection of culture, language, and smell. And we level up on our olfactory neuroscience with University of Pennsylvania Professor Jay Gottfried.
