Abstract

We have shown recently the possibility of generating effector cell preparations enriched with CD56+ lymphocytes, NK and NKT-like, by ex vivo expansion of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from patients with ovarian cancer (FAPESP 2006/04900-2). The current project proposes to evaluate the receptor repertoire (inhibitory receptors: KIR2DL1, KIR2DL2/3 and KIR3DL1 and activating receptors: NKp30, NKp44, NKp46, NKG2D and DNAM-1) and functional integrity (CD107a molecule expression and cytotoxicity against primary neoplasm cells) of the NK and NKT-like lymphocytes from patients with ovarian neoplasm, before and after the ex vivo expansion of CD56+ cells. The experimental design will allow the evaluation of effector cell subtypes independently, and to take into account the clinical stage of the subjects. (AU)
