    Researchers Have Engineered Tiny Particles That Can Trick The Body Into Permanently Accepting Transplants As Its Own. The Particles Release Protein Secreted By Tumors, CCL22, Which Draws Regulatory T Cells To Foreign Transplant To Tag It As Self, Enabling The Transplant To Evade Immune System Attack. This Was Successfully Used On Rats.

    Scientists Have Developed A New Method That Precisely Destroys Cancer Tumor, In Mice, Without Side Effects Of Conventional Drugs. The Method, The Use Of Engineered Bacteria Infused With Nanobodies, Can Destroy Tumor Masking CD47 Proteins. CD47 Prevents Cells From Being Destroyed By The Body’s Immune System. Hopefully, It Works On Humans.
