New anti-cancer treatments apply immunotherapy: harnessing the immune system to combat the tumor. 

Clinical use of anti-cancer drugs such as 'Pembrolizumab' (Keytruda) and Ipilimumab (Yervoy) has given hope to many cancer patients, primarily those suffering from melanoma. 
Studies show that 60 percent of melanoma patients respond to immunotherapy treatments.  The rest have to wait for the development of novel therapies.

Researchers found a way to differentiate male and female sperm cells easily. Materials that slow the movement of X spermIn most mammals, half of the offsprings are females, and the other half are males. 
For humans, this ratio maintained, and women are about 49.5 of the human population. 
The egg always contains an X chromosome while the sperm can contain an X and lead to a female, or a Y leading to a male. 
The likelihood of each type of sperm cell is almost equal.
So far, IVF processes have been entirely randomized in neonatal sex. 
There was no way to separate the X and Y sperm in a way that would leave them intact and capable of fertilizing the egg.
