Differentiation of stem and progenitor cells in activated immune cells with anti-malignant properties

Studies on the biology of immune cells are mainly focused on their role as immune activators and modulators. In their appropriate cultivation and/or modifications, they have shown abilities for an enhanced expression of specific effective molecules. These properties have characterized them as promising candidates for construction of novel safe vaccines and gene-engineering products on their basis. In this aspect, in the...
