A major problem in generating effective antitumor CTL responses is that most tumors express self-antigens to which the immune system is rendered unresponsive due to mechanisms of self-tolerance induction. CTL precursors (CTLp) expressing high-affinity T-cell receptors (TCR) are often functionally deleted from the repertoire, leaving a residual repertoire of CTLp having only low-affinity TCR. Furthermore, even when unique antigens are expressed, their presentation by dendritic cells (DC) may… CONTINUE READING
