Noninvasive imaging of dendritic cell migration into lymph nodes using near‐infrared fluorescent semiconductor nanocrystals
Effective tracking of immunotherapeutic cells is essential for monitoring the migration of injected cells to the target tissue. Here we report the use of near‐infrared (NIR) ‐emitting fluorescentExpand

Impaired responses of leukemic dendritic cells derived from a human myeloid cell line to LPS stimulation
Several myeloid leukemia-derived cells have been reported to possess the ability to differentiate into dendritic cells (DC). MUTZ-3, a myeloid leukemia cell line, responds to GM-CSF, IL-4 and TNF-α,Expand

Activated natural killer cell-mediated immunity is required for the inhibition of tumor metastasis by dendritic cell vaccination
Immunization with dendritic cells (DCs) pulsed with tumor antigen can activate tumor-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL), which is responsible for tumor protection and regression. In this study,Expand

Growth mode and structural characterization of GaSb on Si (001) substrate: A transmission electron microscopy study
Growth mode and structural properties of GaSb layers grown on silicon substrate by molecular beam epitaxy method are investigated by transmission electron microscopy. It is found that the GaSb growsExpand

High-resolution transmission electron microscopy study on the growth modes of GaSb islands grown on a semi-insulating GaAs (001) substrate
The initial growth behaviors of GaSb on a GaAs substrate were studied using a high-resolution electron microscope (HRTEM). Four types of GaSb islands were observed by HRTEM. HRTEM micrographs showedExpand

Near-infrared emitting polymer nanogels for efficient sentinel lymph node mapping.
Sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping has been widely used to predict the metastatic spread of primary tumor to regional lymph nodes in clinical practice. In this research, a new near-infraredExpand

Synthetic vaccine nanoparticles target to lymph node triggering enhanced innate and adaptive antitumor immunity.
In this study, synthetic vaccine nanoparticles (SVNPs) that efficiently targeted lymph nodes, where immune responses against foreign antigens are primed, were developed to enhance antitumor immunity.Expand

Multiplexed imaging of therapeutic cells with multispectrally encoded magnetofluorescent nanocomposite emulsions.
Here, we describe the fabrication of multispectrally encoded nanoprobes, perfluorocarbon (PFC)/quantum dots (QDs) nanocomposite emulsions, which could provide both multispectral MR and multicolorExpand
