Survival of individuals [6] with mCRC which in some situations exceed two years . In last years, several evidences are accumulating on the function of immune system cells in controlling tumors at unique stages of illness (from the initiation to the [7,8] metastatic spread and growth) . The issue is quite complex since the interactions amongst components with the immune method and tumor cells are largely unknown. We not too long ago reported that polymorphisms of receptors involved in ADCC (antibody-mediated cellular cytotoxicity) as well because the NK cells activity of patients impacted by mCRC were predictive and [9] prognostic . In addition, MDSCs (myeloid-derived suppressor cells) and Tregs (regulatory T-cell) are a component from the immune system that may market [10] tumor progression by inhibiting each innate and adaptive immune responses. In particular they may be able to suppress conventional effector immune cells (T cells, NK cells, macrophages) which play a crucial part in anti-tumor responses. Here we report a case of a mCRC patient responding to very first and second-line chemotherapies and having a tough complete response to panitumumab single agent. NK cell activity of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) was evaluated. As extra details, also MDSCs and Tregs were characterized.Phenotypic analysis of peripheral immune cell subsetsFlow cytometry was performed on fresh venous blood (BD Biosciences), working with a FACSCanto 6-colour flow cytometer and analyzed using BD FACSDivaTM Computer software version six.2 (BD Bioscience, San Jose, CA, Usa), everyday calibrated with Calibrite beads (Fitc, Pe, PerCP and APC) and Compbeads (Pe-Cy7 and APC-Cy7; Becton Dickinson, San Jose, CA, Usa). For identification of circulating Tregs the following fluorochrome labeled anti-human monoclonal antibodies had been employed: CD4, CD25, CD127, FOXP3, CD45RA, CD45R0. The classical populations had been + + low int + CD4 /CD25 /CD127 /FOXP3 /CD45RA (na e Treg + + low higher cells) versus CD4 /CD25 /CD127 /FOXP3 /CD45RA (activated Treg cells). CD39 (ENTPD1), CD152 (CTLA-4), CD184 (CXCR4), and CD279 (PD-1) were also evaluated (information not shown).

CEA (CarcinoEmbryonic Antigen) was 12.3 ng/ mL (Figure 1). A left hemicolectomy was performed in July 2009; pathology revealed a stage IIIb welldifferentiated adenocarcinoma. He received adjuvant 2 chemotherapy with folfox6 (oxaliplatin 85 mg/m on two day 1, leucovorin 200 mg/m as a 2-h infusion on day two 1 and 5-FU 400 mg/m IV bolus on day 1 followed by a 2 5-FU two.400 mg/m 46-h continuous infusion, repeated every 14 d) from August 2009 to November 2009 (six cycles), stopped for his choice. For the duration of follow-up a progressive increases of CEA was registered (Figure 1). In December 2011 a CT (Computed Tomography) was fully adverse, the.
