    Summary Using the differentiation antigen Pmel17/gp100 to genetically immunize C57BL/6 mice (H-2b), we and colleagues noticed that only mice that had received the human homolog but not animals injected with the murine counterpart were protected against the growth of syngeneic B16 melanoma cells....

    The cancer-testis (CT) family of antigens are expressed in multiple types of malignant neoplasm and are silent in normal tissues, apart from the testis. Immunotherapy targeting CT antigens is a promising therapeutic strategy for treatment of solid tumors. One member of this family,...

    BACKGROUND: Accumulating evidence has demonstrated that the immune system can recognize the antigenic changes in cancer cells, and further develop autoantibodies against these tumor-associated antigens (TAAs). Therefore, these cancer-associated autoantibodies might be used to identify the...

    Human malignant gliomas contain epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene mutations that encode tumor-associated antigens (TAAs) that can be targeted using immunological techniques. One EGFR mutant gene (EGFRvIII) encodes a protein with an epitope that is not found in normal tissues. A number...

    A mouse glioblastoma cell line, termed GL261, was shown to express high levels of proteins involved in melanin biosynthesis such as the tyrosinase-related protein-2 (TRP-2), which is commonly overexpressed in melanoma cells. Mice injected with GL261 cells developed a CD8+ T-cell response to...

    Glioblastoma (GBM) is among the most invasive and lethal of cancers, frequently infiltrating surrounding healthy tissue and giving rise to rapid recurrence. It is therefore critical to establish experimental model systems and develop therapeutic approaches that enhance anti-tumor immunity. In...

    Induction of immunity after DNA vaccination is generally considered a slow process. Here we show that DNA delivery to the skin results in a highly transient pulse of antigen expression. Based on this information, we developed a new rapid and potent intradermal DNA vaccination method. By...

    Cancer-testis antigens (CTAs) represent an expanding class of tumor-associated proteins defined on the basis of their tissuerestricted expression to testis or ovary germline cells and frequent ectopic expression in tumor tissue. The expression of CTA in MHC class I-deficient germline cells makes...
