Identification of an apoptotic cleavage product of BARD1 as an autoantigen: a potential factor in the antitumoral response mediated by apoptotic bodies.
We have shown previously that rats can be cured from induced peritoneal colon carcinomatosis by injections of apoptotic bodies derived from tumor cells and interleukin 2. This curative treatmentExpand
