Malignant glioma is a kind of ill-defined infiltrating brain tumor with poor prognosis and composed of about 51% of all gliomas.1 Even aggressive treatment strategy including resection, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, the median survival rate is about 12~21 months.1,3 Investigation on further means of effective treatment are urgently needed. It is known that tumorgenesis may relate to tumor cell escaped from host immune system and develop into cell cluster that cannot be recognized and defended by host scavenger cell.2 Current research made effect to re-educate the host immune system to recognize the tumor cell as foreign part.4 The critical issue in this immunotherapy is to arouse the host immune cell from immune-suppressive status to immune-active form. This article investigate the behavior of two distinct subsets of dendritic cells (plasmacytoid cells and myeloid cells), the distribution of their abundance, the immune reaction to tumor progression, and the potential as vaccines candidate.
