- glioma-associated peptide-loaded dendritic cell vaccine SL-701
A cell-based cancer vaccine comprised of dendritic cells (DCs) pulsed with various synthetic glioma-associated antigen (GAA) peptides, with potential antineoplastic activity. Upon subcutaneous administration, the glioma-associated peptide-loaded DC vaccine SL-701 exposes the immune system to various GAA peptides. This may stimulate both anti-tumoral cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) and antibody responses against the GAA-expressing glioma cells, which may result in tumor cell lysis. Check for active clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
