We evaluated T-cell responses to mitogens and to defined antigens in breast cancer patients. Significant defects in responses to tetanus toxoid and influenza virus were observed in patients with advanced-stage breast cancer. To define whether these defects were associated with a defect in antigen presentation [dendritic cells (DCs)] or effector function (T(More)
Antitumor CTL responses were studied in a model tumor hearing a mutant human p53 gene. We found ineffective induction of antitumor CTL in mice bearing these tumors associated with measurable defects in the function of dendritic cells (DC) from these animals. In this study we investigate the mechanism of this defect in mature DC and find that functional DC(More)
The goal of this National Cancer Institute-sponsored phase I trial is to determine the feasibility, toxicity, and pharmacokinetics of continuous-infusion (24 hr/d, 7 d/wk, 7-week total) intravenous paclitaxel (Taxol; Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Princeton, NJ) combined with standard curative radiotherapy (RT) for previously untreated, locally advanced head(More)
