Glycolipid Antigens for Treating Hepatic Colorectal Cancer Metastases and Their Effect on the Therapeutic Efficacy of Live Attenuated Listeria monocytogenes

Abstract Full Text
Arch Surg. 2012;147(5):480-482. doi:10.1001/archsurg.2011.2206

Previous work showed that a subset of natural killer T cells in mice decreased the antitumor efficacy of live attenuated Listeria monocytogenes against murine hepatic colorectal cancer metastases. Olino and colleagues hypothesize that specific glycolipids that selectively stimulate natural killer T-cell subsets used alone or co-administered with Listeria monocytogenes would increase survival.
