Here, we explore the immunological relevance of PD-1 expression in tissue resident Vδ1+ γδ T cells and discuss the subsequent implications for cancer immunotherapy.
Tissue wasting occurs frequently in patients with advanced cancer. Here, researchers show that the vasculature in adipose tissue responds to tumor-secreted factors by the release of soluble molecules (so called angiokines) acting in a paracrine manner to amplify wasting of white adipose tissue.
The reasons underlying the different pathogenesis and response to therapies in the myeloproliferative neoplasms have remained enigmatic. Grockowiak et al. provide some clues emerging from disease-specific alterations in the interaction of hematopoietic stem cells with their bone marrow niches (1).
