Tumor-specific immunotherapy: active immunotherapy by augmenting the induction of tumor-specific effector T cells through a T-T cell interaction mechanism

, : Tumor-specific immunotherapy: active immunotherapy by augmenting the induction of tumor-specific effector T cells through a T-T cell interaction mechanism. Gan to Kagaku Ryoho. Cancer & ChemoTherapy 11(8): 1527-1535

Recent progress in tumor-specific immunotherapy was reviewed. Methods involved include a) utilization of tumor-specific monoclonal antibodies in conjugation with various anti-cancer agents, b) adoptive transfer of anti-tumor effector T cell clones elaborated in vitro in the presence of interleukin-2 and c) active tumor-specific immunotherapy by augmenting the generation of tumor specific effector T cells. This paper focused especially on the amplified induction of tumor-specific immunity by T-T cell interaction between helper T cells and anti-tumor effector T cells. Data were provided indicating successful tumor-specific immunotherapy in autochthonous as well as syngeneic tumor models and such results were discussed in the light of the future clinical application of the tumor-specific active immunotherapy.
