Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) have been accepted as a unique material for cancer immunotherapy using dendritic cells (DC) or activated lymphocytes that are being developed as an alternative or adjuvant to conventional therapies such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatment. Although successful cryopreservation of large numbers of PBMC is critical for the immunotherapy, subsequent functional study of the effects of PBMC cryopreservation on differentiation into immune cells… CONTINUE READING
