In the cross talk between NK cells and DCs, NK cells promote the maturation of DCs and their migration to tumor-draining lymph nodes (TDLNs), resulting in the enhancement of antigen presentation to naive T cells for clonal expansion of CTLs. The TAs-specific T lymphocytes are recruited to the primary tumor site and directly attack and kill tumor cells with the production of cytotoxic INF-γ. , 2002). The first phase is the recognition of tumor cells by innate immune cells and their limited killing.
