Several approaches have been taken to enhance immunity against tumors and infectious diseases in humans. These strategies target either the adaptive immune responses, i.e T cells and B cells, or enhance the activity of antigen presenting cells (APC) such as dendritic cells (DC). Dr. Sabado, as the Director of the Vaccine and Cell Therapy Laboratory (VCTL), is involved in developing new approaches to enhance the activity of DC to induce effective immune responses against tumors and infectious diseases in vivo.
