Caption: False-colour scanning electron micrograph of a lymphokine-activated natural killer (LANAK) cell (yellow) engaging a cancer cell (red). LANAK cells are lymphocytes that have been doped with Inter- leukin-2 (IL-2), a protein released naturally by certain key cells of the immune system after they have been activated by foreign antigens (such as those found on cancer cells). IL-2 amplifies the proliferation of other cell types, including LANAK cells that attack cancer cells directly. In this technique, blood is removed, doped with IL-2 and cultured in vitro to raise the population of LANAK cells. This is then re-injected into the patient. Mag: x6700 at 5x7inch, x2800 at 6x7cm size.
