Increasing evidence indicates that tumour-associated macrophages (TAMs), the cells of the immune system that are activated as part of the body’s defense response, play an important role in the development of new metastases. The results of the multidisciplinary study, coordinated by the Immunology...

Sickle cell disease: study finds new therapeutic strategy to prevent disease progression

A study from the University of Verona sheds light on a new therapeutic strategy that may prevent the complications of sickle cell disease (SCD), a serious genetic disease that affects about 230,000 children worldwide every year in sub-Saharan Africa and 2600-1300 newborns in North America and Europe.
