Tumor-derived chemokine CCL5 enhances TGF-β-mediated killing of CD8(+) T cells in colon cancer by T-regulatory cells.
Chemokine CCL5/RANTES is highly expressed in cancer where it contributes to inflammation and malignant progression. In this study, we show that CCL5 plays a critical role in immune escape inExpand

The Indispensable Role of CCR5 for In Vivo Suppressor Function of Tumor-Derived CD103+ Effector/Memory Regulatory T Cells
CD103 is a marker for identification of effector/memory regulatory T cells (Tregs). CD103+ Tregs are potent suppressors of tissue inflammation in several infectious diseases, autoimmune diseases, andExpand

Oral inoculation of probiotics Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM suppresses tumour growth both in segmental orthotopic colon cancer and extra-intestinal tissue
Modulation of the cellular response by the administration of probiotic bacteria may be an effective strategy for preventing or inhibiting tumour growth. We orally pre-inoculated mice with probioticsExpand
