Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine awarded jointly to James P Allison and Tasuku Honjo for discovery of a cancer therapy

Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine awarded jointly to James P Allison and Tasuku Honjo for discovery of a cancer therapy

The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for 2018 has been awarded jointly to James P Allison and Tasuku Honjo for their ‘discovery of cancer therapy by inhibition of negative immune regulation’.

The academy said that this year’s Nobel Prize constitutes a landmark in the fight against cancer. “The discovery made by the two Medicine Laureates takes advantage of the immune system’s ability to attack cancer cells by releasing the brakes on immune cells.”

Allison studied a protein that functions as a brake on the immune system. He realised the potential of releasing the brake and unleashing our immune cells to attack tumours. He developed this concept into a new approach for treating patients.
