Cervical Cancer Cells Express Markers Associated with Immunosurveillance

Figure 5

Cancer cells evade the immune system. The tumour cells express markers of the immune system such as CD25, CTLA-4, CD39, and CD73 that help to regulate the tumour microenvironment. Also, these cells express typical markers of NK cells, apparently as a camouflage system to counteract the effect of increased expression of molecules that induce cytotoxicity such as CD95.
