Gag:267-274 peptide vaccine
A peptide vaccine containing the amino acids 267 through 274 of the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) gag core protein (gag:267-274), with potential immunostimulating activity. Upon vaccination, the immune system may exert a potent cytotoxic T-lymphocyte (CTL) response against the xenoantigen gag:267-274 and produces pro-inflammatory cytokines. The concomitant administration of a cancer peptide vaccine may benefit from an already activated immune system and may augment an immune response against the administered tumor associated antigen(s). Gag:267-274 peptide is highly immunogenic and may potentially be used as a cancer immunoadjuvant. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
