Immunotherapy using 'young cells' offers promising option against cancer https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/03/200323112056.htm A new study suggests that the age of certain immune cells used in immunotherapy plays a role in how effective it is. These cells — natural killer (NK) cells — appear to be more effective the earlier they are in development, opening the door to the possibility of an immunotherapy that would not utilize cells from the patient or a matched donor. Instead, they could be developed from existing suppl
