Background:Regulatory T cells (Tregs) are commonly identified by expression of the transcription factor FOXP3 and are conventionally thought to promote cancer progression by suppressing anti-tumour immune responses. We examined the relationship between FOXP3+ tumour-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) and prognosis in oestrogen receptor (ER)-negative breast… CONTINUE READING
