    ..The ability of BDCs to induce efficient CTL responses, combined with their migratory capacity, makes them an appealing alternative to be investigated in clinical immunotherapy research protocols. ..
  3. Kassianos A, Jongbloed S, Hart D, Radford K. Isolation of human blood DC subtypes. Methods Mol Biol. 2010;595:45-54 pubmed publisher
    ..Subsequent flow cytometry-based cell sorting allows the isolation of highly pure individual DC subsets that can then be used for functional studies. ..

    ..The function of CD227 on DC and T cells requires further elucidation. ..

    ..These data implicate a role for small percentages of NK cells in the enhanced capacity of IL-15 MoDC to induce tumour-specific CTL independent of IL-12p70. ..
  6. Ju X, Clark G, Hart D. Review of human DC subtypes. Methods Mol Biol. 2010;595:3-20 pubmed publisher
    ..We also hope to clarify the differences in nomenclature between the human and mouse models that have arisen by way of the different experimental models. ..
  7. Jongbloed S, Kassianos A, McDonald K, Clark G, Ju X, Angel C, et al. Human CD141+ (BDCA-3)+ dendritic cells (DCs) represent a unique myeloid DC subset that cross-presents necrotic cell antigens. J Exp Med. 2010;207:1247-60 pubmed publisher
    ..The data demonstrate a role for CD141+ DCs in the induction of cytotoxic T lymphocyte responses and suggest that they may be the most relevant targets for vaccination against cancers, viruses, and other pathogens...

    ..coli-derived Ag and failed to secrete cytokines in response to E. coli. These data demonstrate substantial differences in the nature of the response of human blood DC subsets to E. coli...
  9. Hart D, Hill G. Dendritic cell immunotherapy for cancer: application to low-grade lymphoma and multiple myeloma. Immunol Cell Biol. 1999;77:451-9 pubmed
    ..Data from animal models and clinical studies suggest that DC-based immunotherapy strategies, applied when the patient has minimal residual disease, may improve the long-term prognosis in these diseases. ..

    ..These data identify the CD300e antigen as another monocyte-specific marker that can be used to purify monocytes for differentiation into functionally active MoDC. ..
  2. Kato M, Khan S, d Aniello E, McDonald K, Hart D. The novel endocytic and phagocytic C-Type lectin receptor DCL-1/CD302 on macrophages is colocalized with F-actin, suggesting a role in cell adhesion and migration. J Immunol. 2007;179:6052-63 pubmed
    ..These data suggest that hDCL-1 is an unconventional lectin receptor that plays roles not only in endocytosis/phagocytosis but also in cell adhesion and migration and thus may become a target for therapeutic manipulation. ..
