Bone marrow is thought to be a primary hematopoietic organ. However, accumulated evidences demonstrate that active function and trafficking of immune cells including Treg cells are observed in the bone marrow. Furthermore, bone marrow is a predetermined metastatic location for multiple human tumors including prostate cancer. And Treg cells contribute to self-tolerance and tumor immune pathology. Our research is designed to investigate the role of Treg cells in patients with prostate cancer and the phenotype and function of human T cells.
