Hunger Pains: Stimulating the Appetite of the Immune System for Cancer

Judson M. Englert, Jonathan D. Powell

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

In this issue, Pietrocola et al. and Di Biase et al. independently demonstrate that caloric restriction from fasting and pharmacologic inhibition results in an enhanced immunogenic response leading to reduced tumor growth. These two studies provide an exciting connection between the emerging fields of cancer and immune metabolism.
