Natural killer (NK) cells have been implied in the resistance against certain tumors and virally-infected cells. The prognostic significance of tumor infiltrating NK cells in primary squamous cell lung carcinoma (SqCLC) has not been fully studied. Fifty patients with primary SqCLC were evaluated for the presence of tumor infiltrating natural killer cells subset CD57 (TINK) after surgery. None of them received adjuvant therapy. Immunohistochemical studies of surgery pieces were performed by… CONTINUE READING
