Exploiting ERK5-signalling to modify T-cell behaviour during tumour progression and radiotherapy response: a new immunotherapy approach?

T-cells can attack tumours (so called anti-tumour responses), causing a reduction in tumour size or even elimination of the tumour. However, in many tumours the tumour “switches off” anti-tumour T-cell responses. Several immunotherapy drugs have been developed that switch anti-tumour T-cell responses back on in patients.

Smoking and psoriasis: does smoking augment the angiogenic drive to the development of psoriasis and does smoking cessation have utility for psoriasis management?

Vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A)-mediated angiogenesis plays a key role in the pathogenesis of psoriasis; a common, inflammatory disease associated with significant extracutaneous morbidity and psychological distress. Thus, patients with psoriasis live with a complex multi-system disease which be a barrier to healthy lifestyle choices. .
