    We also found DC-HIL expression to be induced by melanoma on blood circulating myeloid-derived suppressor cells that promote the cancer’s progression. Using the CD14 low phenotype to mark MDSC in humans, we showed: strong positive correlation between advancing melanoma stage and blood burden of DC-HIL MDSC; quick decline of this blood level after surgical resection of early melanoma; and restoration by anti-DC-HIL mAb of depressed T-cell interferon-gamma response associated with melanoma to near-normal levels.
