Reduced frequency of NKT-like cells in patients with progressive chronic lymphocytic leukemia.


Natural killer T (NKT) cells are a subset of innate immune cells displaying a limited repertoire of antigen specificities and CD1d restriction. Little is known about contribution of NKT cells in cancer initiation and progression. In this study, the frequencies of NKT-like cells, B cells expressing CD1d molecule and CD4(+) regulatory (Treg) cells were… (More)
