New possibilities for the treatment of breast cancer arise, with the help of mathematics

Researchers of three of Switzerland’s leading scientific institutions have brought to light a means of reprogramming a flawed immune response into an efficient anti-tumoral one by the results of a translational trial relating to breast cancer. 

Thanks to the innovative combination of mathematical modelisation and experimentation, only 20 tests were necessary, whereas traditional experimentation would have required 596 tests to obtain the same results.
