Spatial landscape of the tumor immune microenvironment. Academic Article uri icon


  • Two recent studies published in Nature by Karimi et al. and Sorin et al. applied multiplexed imaging mass cytometry (IMC) to characterize the single-cell tumor immune landscapes covering millions of cells in brain tumors and lung adenocarcinomas (LUAD). They identified specific cell subtypes and cell-cell interactions that correlate with distinct clinical outcomes, thus providing valuable insights into tumor biology and prognostic prediction based on spatial architecture.
