  • The role of NKT cells in anti-tumor responses is less clear however, there is evidence that they participate in tumor immunosurveillance and exert anti-tumor responses in vivo evidence of NK/NKT-mediated tumor inhibition is lacking due to the ethical and practical restrictions on using human subjects and the absence of a clinically relevant model.
