It is known that the CD8+ T lymphocytes, which have the NK-activating receptor NKG2D on their surface, acquire an NK-like activity and the ability to kill the HLA-negative tumor cells after a prolonged incubation with the IL-15 or IL-2 cytokines [7-9].
While several aspects of the pathogenesis are poorly understood, most findings support the central role of immune maladaptation-driven superficial placentation, leading to a systemic maternal inflammatory response, in which the role of activated T lymphocytes appears to be pivotal [1-3].

In this sense, T lymphocytes adopt a metabolic program that reflects their energetic and biosynthetic needs in specific states, ranging from resting to memory cell conversion.
