NY-ESO-1 and LAGE-1 cancer-testis antigens are potential targets for immunotherapy in epithelial ovarian cancer.
Cancer-testis (CT) antigens are expressed in a variety of cancers, but not in normal adult tissues, except for germ cells of the testis, and hence appear to be ideal targets for immunotherapy. In anExpand

The prognostic significance of margin width for extremity and trunk sarcoma
To evaluate the significance of resection margin for soft tissue sarcoma (STS), we determined local recurrence‐free interval (LRFI), distant metastases‐free interval (DMFI), and overall survival (OS)Expand
Expression of Wilms tumor gene (WT1) in epithelial ovarian cancer.
OBJECTIVES The identification of proteins that are selectively expressed in cancer and with potential to elicit an immune response is the first step towards antigen-specific immunotherapy. The WilmsExpand
