    We have shown that interleukin-12 (IL-12) generated a strong, albeit transient, anti-tumor response, mostly mediated by natural killer (NK) cell. T cell participation, in addition to NK cells, was essential for persistence of the antitumor response. Ligation of 4-1BB, a co-stimulatory receptor...
