Nancy Luckashenak, Laurence C. Eisenlohr, in Cancer Immunotherapy (Second Edition), I Dendritic Cells: Introduction. Dendritic cells (DCs) are the most potent professional antigen-presenting cells (APCs) in vivo, capable of both tolerance induction and the initiation of primary T-cell responses.A number of DC subsets have been described in both men and mice with . "Dendritic Cells in Cancer," edited by Michael R. Shurin and Russell D. Salter, presents thorough analyses of the complex biology of the tumor-dendritic cell relationship, and offers insights into how cancer treatments may benefit from furthering our understanding in this : Michael R Shurin. Dendritic cells (DCs), named for their probing, ‘tree-like’ or dendritic shapes, are responsible for the initiation of adaptive immune responses and hence function as the ‘sentinels’ of the immune system. Paul Langerhans first described DCs in human skin in but thought they were cutaneous nerve cells. DCs are bone marrow (BM)-derived leukocytes and are the most potent. Since their discovery in by Zanvil Cohn and Ralph Steinman (Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine, ), dendritic cells (DCs) continue to intrigue research scientists as their new markers, subpopulations and properties are being detected and the relevant literature is being doubled each year. This book combines the most comprehensive reviews of several critical .
