I ran across two very interesting articles this morning. The first summarizes research being done at Stanford University’s Institute of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine and the Ludwig Center for Cancer Stem Cell Research.
In short, researchers have found the the CD47 protein acts to protect cancer cells from the body’s natural immune systems defenses. They have developed an antibody that “unmasks” the protective cloak the CD47 protein provides the cancer cells.
The result is that the body’s natural immense system recognizes cancer cells and deals with them naturally.

This looks like a very interesting technology to watch.
