Cancer immunotherapy with p53 antibody
2 May 2017
p53 is one of the most damaged genes in cancer. Because p53 stays inside the cells, it is not straightforward to identify and kill the cells with damaged p53. Jenner Institute researcher, Dr Nicola Ternette has developed an antibody that recognises a p53 fragment presented on cancer cell surface and shows in a recent publication that this antibody is a promising new drug for cancer immunotherapy.
