- Abstract -

Dentritic cells (DCs) process microbial agents or their antigens and migrate to the lymphoid tissue to present the antigenic peptide to the lymphocytes. This leads to antigen-specific lymphocytes activation. Initially, it was assumed that DCs are involved in the induction and maintenance of immune reactions, but currently it is obvious that DCs play an important role in immunity. These characteristics prove that DCs are excellent candidates for the therapy against various phatological conditions, including malignancies.

Key words: dendritic cell, pulmonary, cancer, therapy
