Abstract

Using both transplantable and oncogene-driven autochthonous tumor models challenged with dendritic cell-based vaccines, we have recently found that boosting provides a clear advantage in prophylactic settings, unless performed on an excessively tight schedule, which causes the loss of central memory T cells. In therapeutic settings, boosting turned out to be always detrimental.
