1997) revealed that melanoma-derived factors convert DC-antigen-presenting cell function to tolerance induction against tumor tissue, changing antitumor DC to ‘‘silencers’’ of antitumor immune responses. These and other early reports supported the notion that inadequate presentation of tumor antigens by host DC is one potential mechanism of tumormediated inhibition of DC function as antigen-presenting cells (Fig. 1B). At the same time, it was shown that tumor-derived factors might suppress differentiation and functional maturation of DC (Gabrilovich et al.
