Brief Summary:
In this study, effects of γδT cells on human hepatocellular liver cancer in combination with tumor reducing surgery, for example cryosurgery going to be investigated.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Liver Cancer Biological: DC-CIK cells Biological: γδ T cells Biological: γδ T/DC-CIK cells Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Liver tumor will be removed using tumor reducing surgery such as cryosurgery. PBMC of the patient will be separated from peripheral blood. After making them potential cancer killer γδ T Cell and DC-CIK, they will be infused to the patients as an immunotherapy treatment.
