Human monocyte-derived macrophages and dendritic cells are comparably effective in vitro in presenting HLA class I-restricted exogenous peptides.


Recent experimental data have shown that mice could be immunized efficiently, in particular against cancer, by the injection of antigen-loaded dendritic cells (DC) or macrophages (MPH). In the present work, these two antigen-presenting cells (APC) were prepared in humans from circulating mononuclear cells (MNC). MPH were obtained from MNC that were cultured… (More)
