Abstract

The possible role of immune-modulatory nonclassical molecules HLA-G and HLA-E in an anti-tumoral response and development of glioblastoma is not well characterized. In this study, we evaluated an expression of HLA-G and HLA-E by activated tumor infiltrating microglia/macrophages. We found production of HLA-G and HLA-E by tumor infiltrating activated microglia/macrophages in a majority of glioblastomas. We speculate that the expression of these molecules by activated microglia/CNS macrophages plays a role in the anti-tumoral immunity in the development of glioblastoma. Mechanisms of microglia-glioblastoma cell interactions with respect to the expression of these molecules deserves further study.
