hTERT/survivin/CMV multipeptide vaccine
A vaccine containing multiple peptides derived from the human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT), survivin and cytomegalovirus (CMV), with potential immunostimulating and antineoplastic activities. Upon administration, hTERT/survivin/CMV multipeptide vaccine may elicit a cytotoxic T cell (CTL) response against tumor cells espressing hTERT, survivin and CMV. hTERT, the catalytic subunit of telomerase, and the inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP) family member survivin, both often upregulated in tumor cells, play key roles in tumor cell growth and survival. Further, CMV expression is correlated with certain types of cancer. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
