Expression of lymphocyte homing receptor as a mechanism of dissemination in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Indeed, lymphocytes express different homing receptors after stimulation by the same antigen, depending on whether it is given orally or parenterally.
In addition, we are investigating ways to attach homing receptors to these nurse cells in order to help direct NK cells to where they need to go, whether it's the lymph nodes, brain tissue, bone marrow or other areas.
