Dendritic cells might be one of key factors for eliciting antitumor effect by chemoimmunotherapy in vivo

In this study, we demonstrated that chemoimmunotherapy using S-1, a novel oral fluoropyrimidine anticancer drug, combined with lentinan (LNT), a β (1→3) glucan, was effective in vivo, and we clarified the augmentation of the function of dendritic cells (DCs) in vivo and in vitro. The survival period of Colon-26–bearing mice treated with S-1+LNT was… CONTINUE READING
