Protein-capturing nanoparticles boost immune response to cancer

Scientists have improved cancer treatments in recent years by combining radiotherapy with immunotherapy. Now, researchers in the US and China have engineered nanoparticles to improve outcomes further. The nanoparticles capture tumour-derived proteins at the treatment site, providing a kick to the immune system and enabling it to detect and respond to cancer cells elsewhere in the body.
