New research may have made headway in the fight against cancer by targeting what scientists are calling the disease's "Achilles heel."
Researchers at University College London say they've found a way to find "unique markings" in cancerous tumors that enable the immune system to hone in on the disease.
A professor from the institute told the BBC: "This is exciting. Now we can prioritize and target tumor antigens that are present in every cell - the Achilles heel of these highly complex cancers."
