A simple method to cure established tumors by inflammatory killing of normal cells


We describe a simple technology used to cure an established metastatic disease. Intradermal injection of plasmid DNA encoding a transcriptionally targeted cytotoxic gene, along with hsp70, not only promoted tissue-specific, inflammatory killing of normal melanocytes, but also induced a CD8+ T-cell–dependent, antigen-specific response in mice that eradicated… (More)
