TWiPO #26 ~ Killer Immunoglobulin Receptor Mismatch in Neuroblastoma

May 7, 2012

In this interesting episode, host Dr. Tim Cripe (Nationwide Children's) and co-hosts Dr Lionel Chow (Cincinnati Children's), Dr Andy Kolb (AI DuPont), and Donna Ludwinski (Solving Kids' Cancer) quiz Dr Paul Sondel and Dr Ken DeSantes (both from University of Wisconsin - Madison) on NK cells and the implications of KIR/KIR-ligand mismatch (killer immunoglobulin-like receptor) with regard to immunotherapy treatment of neuroblastoma.
