Inhibition of T-cell responses by intratumoral hepatic stellate cells contribute to migration and invasion of hepatocellular carcinoma


The stroma of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is markedly infiltrated with activated hepatic stellate cells (HSCs), and associated invasion and metastasis of HCC. However, little is known of the role of HSCs in immune responses in HCC. The Buffalo rat HCC model was established. Quiescent HSCs (qHSCs) and intratumoral HSCs (tHSCs) were isolated. Surface… (More)
