PURPOSE A reason that the immune system may fail to reject tumors is that T cells encounter tumor antigen derived peptides on the surface of tumor cells in a tolerizing rather than activating context since tumor cells do not express T cell co-stimulatory molecules such as B7-1 (CD80). In preclinical models over expression of B7-1 on the surface of tumor(More)
We report a single center phase II trial of sequential vaccination followed with vaccine plus interleukin-2 (IL-2). Vaccination consisted of autologous cells cultured from primary tumor or resected metastasis, transduced to express B7.1 surface molecule and then irradiated. The vaccine would hypothetically costimulate tumor-reactive T cells before IL-2(More)
We have measured the presence of granulocyte-macrophage colony forming cells (CFU-GM) and CD34+ cells in blood and bone marrow. We have compared these hematopoietic cell assays using regression analysis. We have found that under the limited and specific case of blood cells from an individual recovering from myelo-suppressive chemotherapy, the fraction of(More)

A phenotypically normal male infant was born. Detailed ultrasound examination of similar cases for visualisation of the genitalia is recommended.
