    Stellated fibrous mesoporous silica nanospheres significantly improve the cellular uptake of cancer antigen and the maturation of bone marrow derived dendritic cells in vitro. Moreover, the combination of poly(I:C) with stellated fibrous MS nanospheres markedly decreases the necessary dose of poly(I:C) for anti-tumor immunity, and thus opens new opportunities for the future clinical application of poly(I:C) in cancer immunotherapy.
