BACKGROUND We examined the criterion-related validity of the Distress Thermometer (DT) for screening distress in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and investigated prospectively how distress changes. METHODS In the cross-sectional study, the DT was tested against the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) in 295 patients with NPC. In the(More)
PURPOSE Dendritic cell (DC) vaccines are a promising immunotherapeutic approach for treatment and prevention of cancer. While this methodology is widely accepted, it also has some limitations. Antigen-presenting cells including DCs express the mannan receptor (MR). The delivery of a mannan-modified tumor antigen to the MR has been demonstrated to be(More)
Antigen-presenting cells including dendritic cells (DCs) express mannan receptors (MR) on their surface, which can be exploited in cancer therapy by designing immune-stimulatory viruses coated with mannan-modified capsids that then bind to DCs and initiate a potent immune response. Although the combination of anti-angiogenesis and cancer immunotherapy(More)
