Further insight into AE37 peptide vaccination in prostate cancer


Cancer peptide vaccination, as an immunotherapeutic approach against solid tumors, is currently employed in several clinical research protocols. The underlying mechanism of peptide-based vaccines involves the generation of a T-cell immune response against tumor or enhancement of an endogenous antitumor immunity pre-existing in the host [1]. Although the rationale of cancer vaccination studies seems to be promising, therapeutic efficacy is rather limited [2,3]. One reason that could account for that is the inappropriate clinical trial design and patient selection, rather than the vaccine itself [3].
