Abstract

This review shows how tumor antigen cross-presentation is affected by the major therapeutic modalities including chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery. We argue that this process could affect the way that a tumor works as its own cellular vaccine, and that it is differentially modulated by the choice of treatment.
