Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) has been demonstrated as of ultmost importance for host tissue homeostasis in bacteria infection. Since a large proportion of cancer patients receiving immunotherapy are suffering from sever pneumonia infection, here, researchers from Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College, clarified the relevance between lung metastasis and neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs).
