World Cancer Day: From Immunotherapy, vaccines to nanotech, new treatments that show promise against disease
Researchers are also looking into using genetically modified salmonella bacteria to destroy tumours from the inside out — where more traditional treatments, notably chemotherapy, cannot penetrate
Scientists find new way to predict risks of immunotherapy: Here's what you need to know about this cancer treatment
The human immune system is constantly working to recognise and eliminate foreign and harmful substances from the body
New immunotherapy for influenza virus infections may also help fight HIV and COVID-19, study suggests
Some studies also indicate that flu shots or vaccines can offer some protection against COVID-19
