NCI Drug Dictionary


gp100-fowlpox vaccine 
A cancer vaccine comprised of a recombinant fowlpox virus vector encoding the melanoma antigen glycoprotein 100 (gp 100) with potential antineoplastic activity. The expression of gp100 may generate a cellular immune response to melanoma cells; this effect is enhanced by the co-administration of interleukin 2 (IL-2). Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
