RCAS1, one of the tumor cell surface antigens, is strongly expressed in aggressive tumors. RCAS1 suppresses the in vitro growth of immune effector cells. We investigated the expression of RCAS1 in 57 gliomas using immunohistochemistry. Furthermore, we examined the association of the RCAS1 expression with the infiltration of tumor infiltrating lymphocyte… CONTINUE READING
