A recent study in Nature explored a new way of fighting cancerous tumours, using a system of multiple techniques in a way that is personalised for each individual’s condition. The new approach combines several cutting-edge technologies to provide perhaps "the most complicated" treatment ever given, according to one researcher, including stimulating a patient's own immune system to fight cancerous tumours.
The study showed it can be feasible and safe to turn the immune system against cancer using a highly personalized approach. The ability to give people an effective treatment individualized across many different variables could open a new era in cancer therapy.
