To investigate the pathophysiological significance of infiltrating antitumour immune cells, we evaluated the quantity of immune cell intratumoral infiltration in 110 surgically resected gallbladder specimens by immunohistochemistry. We examined 45 cases of gallbladder cancer and 65 cases of benign gallbladder diseases for CD4(+) T cells, CD8(+) T cells, natural killer cells (NKCs), and dendritic cells (DCs). High levels of CD4(+) T cell, CD8(+) T cell, NKC, and DC infiltration were recognised in 51.1% (23 out of 45), 37.8% (17 out of 45), 33.3% (15 out of 45), and 48.9% (22 out of 45) of cancer specimens, respectively. High numbers of infiltrating CD4(+) and CD8(+) T cells correlated with decreasing tumour invasion, and high numbers of infiltrating DCs correlated with decreasing lymph-node tumour metastasis.
