Expansion of melanoma-specific T cells from lymph nodes of patients in stage III: implications for adoptive immunotherapy in treating cancer.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Adoptive immunotherapy for patients with metastatic melanoma has yielded encouraging results. However, methods of expanding melanoma-specific T cells from stage III are limited. The objective of this study was to determine whether melanoma-specific T cells could be generated from the melanoma-draining lymph nodes (MDLNs) of patients in stage III… (More)
