Immunotherapy, Adoptive definition: Form of adoptive transfer where cells with antitumor activity are transferred to the tumor-bearing host in order to mediate tumor regression. The lymphoid cells commonly used are lymphokine-activated killer (LAK) cells and tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL). This is usually considered a form of passive immunotherapy. (From DeVita, et al., Cancer, 1993, pp.305-7, 314)
Adoptive Immunotherapy definition: A technique for enhancing cell-mediated immunity by: 1) artificially increasing the number of specific immunocompetent cells through inoculation of either ex-vivo expanded primarily activated cytotoxic lymphocytes or genetically engineered lymphocytes with enhanced cytotoxic ability or 2) by altering tumor cells to make them more immunogenic.
