Suppression of tumor-specific T cell sensitization is a predominant mechanism of tumor escape. To identify tumor-induced suppressor cells, we transferred spleen cells from mice bearing progressive MCA205 sarcoma into sublethally irradiated mice. These mice were then inoculated subdermally with tumor cells to stimulate T cell response in the tumor-draining(More)
Minimal requirements for generating effective immunity include the delivery of antigenic (signal 1) and costimulatory (signal 2) signals to T lymphocytes. Recently, a class of third signals, often delivered by antigen-presenting dendritic cells, has been shown to greatly enhance immune responses, especially against tumors. Among signal 3 factors,(More)
