Role of myeloid and lymphoid suppressor cells in tumor-associated immune suppression.

Project Details


The immune system can have a great role during tumor progression. The existance of anti-tumor immunity has been proven, both in mouse models as in human patients. This has resultated, thanks to the identification of tumor associated antigenes, in an increased interest in the development of immunotherapeutic approaches for the treatment of cancer. By this far, meaningful clinical results are rare.
