2018 Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine Awarded for Cancer Immunotherapy

Congratulations to James Allison and Tasuko Honjo for winning the 2018 Nobel Prize for Physiology/Medicine. Specifically, they discovered the CTLA-4 and PD-1 proteins, and found that inhibiting these proteins allowed the immune system to attack tumors. These discoveries were instrumental in launching the cancer immunotherapy revolution.
