James P. Allison of the United States and Tasuku Honjo of Japan were awarded the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. Their research has led to major advancements in cancer therapies that train the immune system to fight cancer, this incredible discovery is known as immune checkpoint blockade.
