How the white blood cells cause tumours? This was an imminent probe for long and some scientists have identified the cells  which are behind the cancerous growth of tumours by suppressing the disease-fighting immune system in the body. The results mark a turning point in cancer immunology and provide the foundation for developing more effective therapies and was known earlier that ...
