The effectors of killer activity induced by interferon-alpha and gamma in peripheral blood mononuclear cells.


The nature of effectors of interferon (IFN)-alpha or IFN-gamma-induced killer cell activity remains unclear. The aim of this study was to examine killer cell activity induced by IFN-alpha alone, IFN-gamma alone or a combination of both in patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and to determine the phenotypic patterns of these effectors. The study group… (More)
