The analysis of immune responses of patients with melanoma has led to the identification of melanoma-associated antigens targeted by T cells. Cytotoxic T lymphocytes recognize peptides from melanoma-associated antigens presented on the cancer cell surface in the context of HLA class I molecules. Immunodominant melanoma-associated antigen epitopes are being… CONTINUE READING
