Cancer arises from the aberrant proliferation of a single transformed cell. This population acquires the ability to metastasise. An effective way to remove cancer cells from the body is to activate tumour-specific cytotoxic T cells (CTL). Activation of naive T cells depends on the unique antigen presenting capacity of DC. Activated tumour antigen-specific CTL can destroy cancer cells without harm to normal tissue. Their ability to stimulate antigen specific T cell responses makes DC attractive...[Show more]
