Immunotherapy treatments for cancer are becoming increasingly successful, however to further improve our understanding of the T-cell recognition involved in effective responses and to encourage moves towards the development of personalised treatments... Read More

Analogue peptides for the immunotherapy of human acute myeloid leukemia (2015)
Journal Article
Hofmann, S., Mead, A., Malinovskis, A., Hardwick, N. R., & Guinn, B. (2015). Analogue peptides for the immunotherapy of human acute myeloid leukemia. Cancer Immunology, Immunotherapy, 64(11), 1357-1367. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00262-015-1762-9

The use of peptide vaccines, enhanced by adjuvants, has shown some efficacy in clinical trials. However, responses are often short-lived and rarely induce notable memory responses. The reason is that self-antigens have already been presented to the i... Read More

A novel zinc finger gene,ZNF465, is inappropriately expressed in acute myeloid leukaemia cells: ZNF465 Expression in Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (2015)
Journal Article

To increase our knowledge of leukaemia‐associated antigens, especially in acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) M4, we prepared a phage display cDNA library using mRNA from the bone marrow cells of a patient with AML M4 at diagnosis. We immunoscreened 106 pf... Read More

Infrequent expression of the Cancer-Testis antigen, PASD1, in ovarian cancer (2015)
Journal Article

Ovarian cancer is very treatable in the early stages of disease; however, it is usually detected in the later stages, at which time, treatment is no longer as effective. If discovered early (Stage I), there is a 90% chance of five-year survival. Ther... Read More
