The present existing adoptive cellular immunotherapy and strategies for enhancing clinical curative effects of cytokine-induced killer (CIK) cells. CIK cells have become the main adoptive immunotherapeutic cells because of their particular biological characteristics and have been demonstrated to exert their therapeutic function in various malignancies except T-cell lymphoma. Additionally, numerous clinical trials have suggested that some existing regimens using CIK cells can enhance the clinical curative effects on malignant diseases. LAK, lymphocyte-activated killer cells; TIL, tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes; DC, dendritic cells; NK, natural killer cells; NKT, natural killer T cells; CART, chimeric antigen receptor-modified T cells; IL, interleukin.
