Inflammation and cancer
Inflammation and cancer
You are alive because of inflammation. It is your body’s natural response to infection or injury. In normal circumstances, inflammation eliminates foreign invaders (bacteria or viruses), damaged cells to heal wounds within hours or days.
However, this life-saving friend can also turn to foe. Chronic inflammation is linked to more than 50 per cent of all deaths worldwide and at least one in five cancers.

Our research in inflammation and cancer
By identifying the mechanisms of our immune system that drive inflammation and cancer, we can better understand how inflammation is involved in tumour formation and growth. This knowledge will aid in the development of inflammation-targeting drugs that fight cancer progression and alleviate disease.
