Astrocytes in Cocaine Addiction and Beyond

Scientists provide a brief overview of the role of astrocytes in regulating synaptic transmission and neuronal function, and discuss how cocaine influences these astrocyte-mediated mechanisms to induce persistent synaptic and circuit alterations that promote cocaine seeking and relapse.

Systemic Immunity in Cancer

Emerging evidence suggests that immunotherapy drives new immune responses rather than the reinvigoration of pre-existing immune responses. Scientists comprehensively outline the current knowledge of systemic immunity in cancer.

Tumor Immune Microenvironment during Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition

Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) has been shown to play a critical role in tumor development from initiation to metastasis. EMT could be regarded as a continuum, with intermediate hybrid epithelial and mesenchymal phenotypes having high plasticity.
