Purpose: The prognosis of patients with advanced biliary tract cancer (BTC) is extremely poor and there are only a few standard treatments. We conducted a phase I trial to investigate the safety, immune response, and antitumor effect of vaccination with four peptides derived from cancer-testis antigens, with a focus on their fluctuations during long-term(More)

Author manuscripts have been peer reviewed and accepted for publication but have not yet been edited. Translational Relevance Numerous clinical reports have shown that peptide vaccines can induce peptide-specific CTLs to mediate tumor-specific responses in vivo. However, there is currently no suitable peptide vaccine for biliary tract cancer. In addition,(More)
BACKGROUND Elucidation of the mechanisms by which gastric cancer cells acquire resistance to 5-fluorouracil (5FU) may provide important clues to the development of effective chemotherapy for 5FU-resistant gastric cancer METHODS Four 5FU-resistant cell lines (MKN45/5FU, MKN74/5FU, NCI-N87/5FU, and KATOIII/5FU) were established by continuous exposure of the(More)
