Researchers have investigated the varying composition of cancer and immune cells in over one hundred breast tumors. They've found that aggressive tumors are often dominated by a single type of tumor cell. If certain immune cells are present as well, an immune therapy could be successful for a specific group of breast cancer patients.

Breast tumors are complex ecosystems. The image shows an invasive breast cancer consisting of many different tumor cell types (irregularly shaped mosaic stones) surrounded and infiltrated by many immune cells (colored circles).

Every year more than 1.7 million women all over the world are diagnosed with breast cancer, with the disease ending fatally for around half a million patients. In the fight against breast cancer, research is being done into novel therapeutic approaches that are designed to target cancer cells more precisely and also activate the tumor-associated ...
