Collection of monocytes for the generation of dendritic cells

Transfusion Medicine

Head of Department:
Prof. Dr. med. Holger Hackstein, MBA

Circulating monocytes are precursors of dendritic cells which play a key role in the immune systems function by presenting antigens to specific lymphocytes. The collection and cultivation of these cells enables the development of new strategies in the treatment of malignant diseases. Members of the Department of Transfusion Medicine cooperate with collegues from the Department of Dermatology to adjust the collection procedures optimally to the specific clinical and experimental demands of procedures aimed at the cultivation, expansion and priming of dendritic cells.
