Mature dendritic cells differentiated in the presence of interferon-beta and interleukin-3 prime functional antigen-specific CD8 T cells.
Dendritic cell (DC)-based immunization represents a promising approach for the immunotherapy of cancer. The optimal conditions required to prepare DCs remain to be defined. Monocytes incubated in the presence of interferon (IFN)-beta and interleukin (IL)-3 give rise to a distinct type of DCs (IFN-beta/IL-3 DCs) that are particularly efficient at eliciting IFN-gamma and IL-5 production by allogeneic helper T cells. We assessed the capacity of this new type of DCs to prime antigen-specific naiv...Expand abstract
