Unconventional T cells, including invariant natural killer T (iNKT) cells, constitute a relevant fraction of effector T-cells at mucosal sites and are pivotal in mucosal homeostasis and tumor immune surveillance. Tissue-specific signals, including those from the microbiota, determine whether unconventional T cells respond in a homeostatic or pathogenic manner.
Here, we summarise the contribution of iNKT cells to colorectal cancer (CRC) pathophysiology in patients with a previous history of IBD. To this aim, high-dimensional single-cell flow cytometry, metagenomics, spatial transcriptomics, and in-vitro experiments has been performed to evaluate the phenotype and function of human iNKT cells.

Il seminario è APERTO a tutti.
