Melanoma immunoediting by NK cells

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The immune system can control the early steps of tumor growth, but it may also induce phenotypic/functional changes of malignant cells during tumor progression,favoring immunoescape mechanisms. In a recent study, we revealed how natural killer (NK) cells can participate in such an immunoediting process, by rendering melanoma cells resistant to NKmediated killing.
