To evaluate the prognostic impact of human leukocyte antigen class I (HLA-I) expression on immune surveillance in colorectal cancer, we studied 88 curatively resected tumors for HLA-A and HLA-B/C expression and correlated these data to clinical and histopathological parameters. HLA-A was normal (all tumor cells had HLA expression) in 32%, reduced(More)
p53 overexpression occurs in more than 50% of colorectal carcinomas, which makes it an interesting target for immunotherapy. HLA class I expression on tumor cells is required for the presentation of p53 peptides and an effective T-cell mediated-immune response to ensue. To analyze to which extent p53 and HLA-I expression in a primary tumor reflects(More)
