Natural killer (NK) cell-based immunotherapies treat hematopoietic malignancies, but are less effective against solid tumors. Here, we review recent data on NK cell recognition of melanoma at various stages of the disease and propose a combinatorial strategy to exploit fully the potential of NK cells. Depending on the stage of melanoma progression, NK cell… CONTINUE READING
