Toward a more complete recognition of immunoreactive antigens in squamous cell lung carcinoma.


There is very limited knowledge about the antibody response against tumor-expressed antigens in lung cancer. To arrive at a more complete picture of lung cancer antigens, we generated 2 cDNA libraries from squamous cell lung carcinoma and isolated 15 immunogenic antigens using autologous sera. Among the antigens most frequently identified were the lymphoid… (More)
