Specific cellular immunotherapy for cancer requires efficient generation and expansion of cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) that recognize tumor-associated antigens. However, it is difficult to isolate and expand functionally active T-cells ex vivo. In this study, we investigated the efficacy of a new method to induce expansion of antigen-specific CTLs for(More)
gδ T cells, a small subset of T lymphocytes, are involved in innate immunity. It has been demonstrated that gδ T cells have cytotoxic activities against cells infected with a variety of viruses. However, there is little evidence suggesting a cytotoxic activity of gδ T cells against HTLV-1-infected cells. Therefore, we investigated whether gδ T cells play a(More)
