As it was reported earlier, James P. Allison and Tasuku Honjo were awarded with the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discovery of cancer therapy by inhibition of negative immune regulation. 

It was noted that cancer kills millions of people every year and is one of humanity’s greatest health challenges. By stimulating the ability of our immune system to attack tumour cells, this year’s Nobel Prize laureates have established an entirely new principle for cancer therapy.
