PURPOSE Among tumor antigens identified to date, cancer-testis (CT) antigens, which are coded by CT genes, are identified as a group of highly attractive targets for cancer vaccines. This study is the first to analyze the mRNA expression and possible correlation with pathologic characteristics of multiple CT genes in a large cohort of colorectal cancer (CRC) patients. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN The expression of 10 individual CT genes in 121 CRC and adjacent tissues were analyzed by RT-PCR method… CONTINUE READING
