Brief description Cancers have thousands of mutations, so they should look a bit like a viral infection. If so, why doesn’t the immune system just destroy them outright, like they would a virus? We think the mutated proteins cause a ‘brake’ to be put on the anti-cancer immune response, and also that cancers subvert the anti-cancer attack by remaining hidden in the target zone. Unblocking these “brakes” might lead to new treatments.
