Characteristics of CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cells in the peripheral circulation of patients with head and neck cancer

Abstract

Patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN) have depressed antitumour immunity. The presence of CD4+CD25+ (Treg) cells in these patients might be, in part, responsible for downregulation of antitumour immune responses. To evaluate the frequency and characteristics of Treg in the peripheral circulation of patients with SCCHN, we used… (More)
