p53-specific CD8+ T-cell responses in individuals with cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma.
BACKGROUND: Systemic immunosuppression is a significant risk factor for cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). p53 is mutated and overexpressed in up to 90% of cutaneous SCC lesions. Despite considerable evidence that the immune response is important in the control of cutaneous SCC, there are no studies documenting potential tumour-associated antigens. OBJECTIVES: We tested the hypothesis that individuals with cutaneous SCC have functional circulating CD8+ T cells specific for p53. METHODS:...Expand abstract
