The therapeutic efficacy of anthracyclines relies on antitumor immune responses elicited by dying cancer cells. How chemotherapy-induced cell death leads to efficient antigen presentation to T cells, however, remains a conundrum. We found that intratumoral CD11c(+)CD11b(+)Ly6C(hi) cells, which displayed some characteristics of inflammatory dendritic cells(More)
Immunomodulators are effective in controlling hematologic malignancy by initiating or reactivating host antitumor immunity to otherwise poorly immunogenic and immune suppressive cancers. We aimed to boost antitumor immunity in B-cell lymphoma by developing a tumor cell vaccine incorporating α-galactosylceramide (α-GalCer) that targets the immune adjuvant(More)
The natural killer T (NKT) cell ligand, alpha-galactosylceramide (α-GalCer), represents a potential adjuvant to boost immunotherapeutic vaccination strategies against poorly immunogenic cancers. The objective of this study was to assess the therapeutic potential of an α-GalCer-loaded tumor-cell vaccine against solid tumors in mice and to enhance the(More)
