Turning Cold Tumors Hot: The RANK Pathway as an Immune Modulator in Breast Cancer

Posted in Research Summary

Although immune checkpoint inhibitors have changed the treatment landscape for some cancers such as melanoma and non-small cell lung cancer, other tumor types often described as immunologically “cold” do not respond well to immunotherapy. Using Bio X Cell’s Anti-mouse RANKL (clone IK22/5) antibody, researchers demonstrated that inhibition of the RANK pathway turns cold breast tumors into hot tumors that can potentially benefit from immunotherapy.

Macrophages on the Move: Visualization of Patrolling Alveolar Macrophages

Posted in Research Summary

More than 10,000 liters of non-sterile air pass through our lungs each day. Although most pathogens are filtered out in the upper respiratory tract, evidence suggests that some bacteria make their way into the alveoli where oxygen and carbon dioxide are exchanged in the lungs.
