Heat shock has been shown to have pleiotropic effects on tumor physiology besides a direct cytotoxic effect. In the present study, we address the question whether heat shock treatment has an impact on the antigenicity of human melanoma cells and their specific recognition by cytotoxic lymphocytes. The heat shock response was induced by treating the cells(More)
Ifosfamide, a clinically potent chemotherapeutic agent, causes the depletion of intracellular glutathione (GSH) levels in various cell types. GSH is the major intracellular reductant against oxidative stress. 4-Hydroxyifosfamide (4-OH-IF), the activated form of ifosfamide, depletes GSH levels in T cells and natural killer (NK) cells; this is accompanied by(More)
