Vaccination with trifunctional nanoparticles that address CD8+ dendritic cells inhibits growth of established melanoma


Aim: We wanted to assess the potency of a trifunctional nanoparticle (NP) that targeted and activated CD8+ dendritic cells (DC) and delivered an antigen to induce antitumor responses. Materials & methods: The DC targeting and activating properties of ferrous NPs conjugated with immunostimulatory CpG-oligonucleotides, anti-DEC205 antibody and ovalbumin (OVA) as a model antigen to induce antigen-specific T-cell responses and antitumor responses were analyzed.
