Artificial lymphocytes will speed up the production of cells for immunotherapy 6 times

Scientists are now taking samples of immune cells from humans to grow cells for immunotherapy.

they are activated and modified in vitro, and then transplanted back into humans.

This currently most effective method of fighting cancer has two significant disadvantages - it takes 6 to 8 weeks to produce cells, and they live in the body for only a few days.

Researchers have proposed a new way of growingcells - in the analogue of human lymph nodes created from hydrogel. This has reduced the time to grow more than 150 thousand cells — enough for a cancer therapy — to one week.

It was previously reported that engineers from the University of Vienna are developing a vest with flexible radio frequency coils designed to detect breast cancer in the early stages.
