Glycodendrimeric ligands of C-type lectin receptors as therapeutic agents in experimental cancer
The increased knowledge about the receptor-ligand relationships of the cytotoxic effector cells is suggesting modalities for new systems of immunomodulation. The lectin receptors on natural killer cells (NK) and their recognition of carbohydrate ligands are part of these new perspectives.
