Our immune system is one of the most phenomenal parts of our miraculous biology. A baby’s immune system is constantly reading and recording the individual characteristics of its host body’s cells and tissues. Eventually, it has an intricate data base of just what its body came outfitted with, so it can recognize any foreign intruder for the rest of its life. When cancer cells appear, the immune system cells immediately attack them as undesirables. Normally, they can kill the cells on the spot. It happens routinely in your body and in mine. There are times when either the immune system is weakened or the cancer cells are too strong, and chemical or radiation intervention is necessary to kill the cells. Unfortunately, these therapies can severely restrict the immune function. A new study involving two popular chemotherapy drugs has found that the drugs may thwart the immune response to cancer. My immediate thought was, “duh.” Does anyone really need a study to understand that?
