Abstract

Dendritic cells (DCs) are known to initiate adaptive immune responses against malignant cells. However, the role in anticancer immunosurveillance of 6-sulfo LacNAc-expressing DCs (slanDCs), a distinct population of circulating and tissue-resident pro-inflammatory DCs, is unclear. We have recently demonstrated the involvement of slanDCs in nodal immune responses against carcinoma cells.
