We analyzed the ability of interferon (IFN)-gamma knockout mice (GKO) to reject a colon carcinoma transduced with interleukin (IL)-12 genes (C26/IL-12). Although the absence of IFN-gamma impaired the early response and reduced the time to tumor onset in GKO mice, the overall tumor take rate was similar to that of BALB/c mice. In GKO mice, C26/IL-12 tumors(More)
We evaluated whether antibody response correlates with tumor therapy by cytokine gene-modified tumor cell vaccines. To characterize the antibody (Ab) response against a known antigen, colon carcinoma C26 cells and C26 variants engineered to produce interleukin (IL) 12 or IL-4 were further transduced to express the human tumor-associated antigen gp38 folate(More)
We analyzed the ability of interferon (IFN)-␥ knockout mice (GKO) to reject a colon carci-noma transduced with interleukin (IL)-12 genes (C26/IL-12). Although the absence of IFN-␥ impaired the early response and reduced the time to tumor onset in GKO mice, the overall tumor take rate was similar to that of BALB/c mice. In GKO mice, C26/IL-12 tumors had a(More)
BACKGROUND Aflibercept (ziv-aflibercept) is an anti-angiogenic agent recently approved in combination with FOLFIRI for the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) patients previously treated with oxaliplatin. Despite heterogeneity in response to aflibercept, no biomarkers for efficacy or adverse effects have been identified. Here we present(More)
