About this work
A T-cell killing a cancer cell A T-lymphocyte or T-cell is a type of white blood cell, this particular T-cell is of the cytotoxic kind (toxic to living cells) and therefore it is able to identify dangerous cancer cells and destroy them. It is the potential power of these T-cells that have led research scientists to continue to investigate how they might be manipulated further. It is hoped they will help to provide much safer more effective treatments for cancer, which will work in conjunction with the bodies own immune response. Cellular level art, paint on silk, digitised.
