In another study, Farzad et al15 took lymph node lymphocytes (LNL) and tested these LNLs against melanoma cell lines to determine their ability to inhibit tumor growth. LNLs taken from close to primary tumors inhibited growth in vivo less than lymphocytes from more distant lymph nodes. In 2000, Almand and colleagues16 showed that dendritic cell function was defective in cancer patients, and that this might be a factor in the metastatic process. Essner and Kojima17 have been looking at dendritic cell function in sentinel and nonsentinel lymph nodes of melanoma patients.
