The Natural killer (NK)cells have the ability to distinguish the “self”and “non-self” cells and have intrinsic anti-tumor properties. They exhibit explicit response to the stimulation or inhibition in the lysis of specific target cells. In the current scenario, there is a need for detailed studies and specifically-designed approaches to determine the usefulness of NK cells in tumor immunology. The knowledge of the activity of NK cells, its deficiency and association in the treatment of broad-spectrum diseases such as cancer, AIDS can be evaluated and monitored to enhance its therapeutic value.
