    From what I've read, three ways to fight off this cancer is with Immune Checkpoint Blockade Therapies, Cancer Vaccines or with T-Cell Transfers. If cancer cells have the ability to fool our body's Natural immune system to turn off, how is it possible that these treatments will be effective? How do you prevent them from attacking healthy cells too? Wouldn't the cancer cells adapt and fool them too?
