‘Invisible’ stem cells evade natural killer cells using immune ‘off-switch’

UC San Francisco scientists have discovered a new way to control the immune system’s ‘natural killer’ (NK) cells, a finding with implications for novel cell therapies and tissue implants that can evade immune rejection. The findings could also be used to enhance the ability of cancer immunotherapies to detect and destroy lurking tumors.
