Haptoglobin (Hp) is a well-known acute-phase protein that possibly has influence on tumors through the immune response. This study was conducted to evaluate the correlation between Hp expression and the effect of treatment by cancer peptide vaccines in advanced castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) patients. Hp expression was measured by RT-PCR using(More)
Although a peptide vaccination is potentially useful for cancers, there are some patients who do not show clinically beneficial response to this treatment. Previously, we have demonstrated gene expression profiling of pre-vaccination peripheral blood mononuclear cells in advanced castration-resistant prostate cancer patients which permits unrestricted use,(More)
Personalized peptide vaccination (PPV) is an attractive approach to cancer immunotherapy with strong immune-boosting effects conferring significant clinical benefit. However, as with most therapeutic agents, there is a difference in clinical efficacy among patients receiving PPV. Therefore, a useful biomarker is urgently needed for prognosticating clinical(More)
