Project Abstract Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) are a heterogeneous population of immature myeloid cells (IMCs). Under physiological conditions, IMCs quickly differentiate into mature granulocytes, macrophages or dendritic cells.

In human cancer patients, massive accumulation of MDSCs is a hallmark of cancer progressio...
