Dendritic cells (DCs) are professional antigen-presenting cells (APCs) specialized to initiate immunity and are critical targets for all vaccines. New methods to generate large quantities of these cells in the laboratory and load them with tumor antigens allows novel approaches targeting these APCs in the clinic. Injection of antigen loaded DCs can boost tumor-specific immunity in patients. Studies in myeloma suggest that the use of autologous tumor as a source of antigen may be the preferred… CONTINUE READING
