Exercise, the immune system and cancer

Must-read paper for cancer immunology researchers

By Benito Campos

You are busy people. But here is a must-read paper for cancer immuno researchers: In the latest edition of Cell Metabolism Pedersen et al. show why exercise might reduce tumor incidence. In mice this effect is mediated by NK cells (and not cytotoxic T-cells!) and NK cells in turn, are recruited by adrenalin and IL-6. So, for all the lazy people out there: May we suggest you learn from Pedersen et al. how to make spare time and stay healthy by consuming epipnephrine - enjoy!

And if you are not in the mood for paper reading today: Here is the review by The Economist.
