BACKGROUND/AIMS Defects and dysfunctions in antigen-presenting dendritic cells have been shown during carcinogenesis. The phenotype and function of dendritic cells have been studied in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma to explore the possibility of dendritic cell-based immune therapy in hepatocellular carcinoma. METHODS The stimulatory capacity of dendritic cells in allogenic mixed leukocytes reaction, the expression of surface makers on dendritic cells, the production of cytokines and… CONTINUE READING
