T-lymphocytes expressing T -cell receptors (TCRs) of the γ/δ type have been suggested to play an important role in mucosal defense against infection and neoplastic transformation. In this study, an immunohistochemical investigation was performed on the distribution of α/β and γ/δ TCRs among tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes. Thirteen patients with squamous… CONTINUE READING
