1.Comparative analysis of antigen loading methods for denderitic cell-based vaccine for murine colon cancer models
1) Dentdritic cell / tumor cell (DC/ TC) fusion hybrids elicited the most effective anti-turnor response, as compared to other antigen-loading vaccines in animal models.
2) DC/TC fusion hybrids induced higher cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) activity than other vaccines and the production of IFN-γ polarized to the Th1 cytokine responses.
2. Correlation between expression of MHC class I and that of antigen presenting machineries in gastrointestinal cancers
1) It was shown that β2-microglobulin and LMP-2 are important for the expression of MHC class I in pancreas, biliary tract, and colon cancer cell lines.
2) Transfection of the wild-type β2-microglobulin gene restored MHC class I antigen expression on the cell surface for the colon cancer cell line, which showed no MHC class I expression and lack of protein expression for β2-microglobulin.
3. Development of allogeneic DC/ TC fusion hybrids vaccine for colon cancer
1) Allogeneic DC/TC fusion hybrids induced greater anti-tumor efficacy compared to syngeneic fuson hybrids in murine colon cancer models.
2) Allogeneic DC/TC fusion hybrids elicited stronger CTL and NK activity than syngeneic DC/TC hybrids. Because it was found that allogeneic DC/TC hybrids induced the higher production of IFN-γ and the higher ratio of the Th1 to Th2 cytokine.
3) Additionally, DC/TC fusion hybrids vaccine induced CTLs specific to both endogenous and exogenous antigens in animal models.
