T lymphocyte recruitment into renal cell carcinoma tissue: a role for chemokine receptors CXCR3, CXCR6, CCR5, and CCR6.
BACKGROUND Evidence suggests that some patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) respond to immunomodulatory therapies that activate T lymphocytes. A prerequisite for effective T cell therapy isExpand

Long-term proliferation of functional human NK cells, with conversion of CD56dim NK cells to a CD56bright phenotype, induced by carcinoma cells co-expressing 4-1BBL and IL-12
Abstract4-1BB ligation co-stimulates T cell activation, and agonistic antibodies have entered clinical trials. Natural killer (NK) cells also express 4-1BB following activation and are implicated inExpand
