Tumor wizardry wards off attacks from the immune system

...ine in St. Louis have found that pancreatic tumors hide from the body's immune surveillance by surrounding themselves with cells that make it hard for the immune system to detect them. The tumor-protecting cells are white blood cells called regulatory T cells, or T-reg for short. Under ordinary circumsta...

Common bacteria pirate natural mechanism to get inside cells

...li uses this mechanism to get inside the cells and hide from the antibiotic effect and the immune system," says Dr. Daaka. "We think their hiding is mediated through dynamin.
