Cold Spring Harbor researchers find immunogenic mutations in tumor genomes correlate with increased patient survival
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 05/01/2014) - Developing immunotherapies for cancer is challenging because of significant variability among tumors and diversity in human immune types. In a study published online today in Genome Research , researchers examined the largest collection of tumor samples to date to predict patient-specific survival
