Abstract

Pharmacological modification of immune responses has been pursued in the last twenty years as a possible therapeutic modality for a number of pathologies that include neoplasia, autoimmune diseases, infections. The search for new agents has been conducted on an empirical basis using complex experimental models of possible predictive value.
