Radiation therapy (RT) is an integral part of treating all stages of lung cancer. Stereotactic ablative radiation therapy (SABR) has emerged as a standard treatment option for stage I-II patients with medically inoperable disease. Stage IIIA-IIIB disease is typically managed with definitive concurrent chemo-radiotherapy (CRT). Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) has enabled delivery of more potent RT dose while greatly limiting dose to surrounding normal organs, including lung, esophagus, and heart...

To investigate the immunologic characteristics and cytotoxicity of the RetroNectin-activated cytokine-induced killer cells (CIK) against drug-resistant lung cancer cell lines DDP-A549 (DDP: Cisplatin). Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) were collected from healthy donors and divided into two groups: group I and group II. Seeded samples of group I into culture flask precoated with RetroNectin and CD3MAb to induce the CIK cells while seeded the group II into culture flask precoated with CD3MAb. In both groups, IFN-gamma was put into the flask on the same day and then IL-2 on the second day...

Dendritic cells (DCs) are "professional" antigen-presenting cells (APCs) that are uniquely capable of activating and instructing a naive immune system to mount a specific cellular and humoral response. Recognition of this crucial function makes the development of technologies for DC-based immuno-therapies a priority for the treatment of a wide variety of diseases. The most immediate impact of this emerging technology will be in the treatment of cancer and the development of third generation vaccines to protect against viral and intracellular pathogens...
