can cause irreversible destruction,
often resulting in
disability. In many
cases of stroke, intervention methods can be deployed to save tissue. But until now, intervention of a stroke has
only been recommended within a limited window of time. Released this past year, new guidelines suggest an

body’s own immune
system to fight cancer.
While immunothera-pies for cancer have
existed for some time,
the worldwide work
toward a cure for cancer
continues to highlight
new and novel immunotherapeutic targets. Scientists are creating life-changing new cancer treatments through
the concepts of joint therapy and engineered T-cells. With the near daily discovery of new immunotherapeutic
targets and biomarkers, it is the hope that effective therapies will soon exist for all tumor profiles.
