Abstract

Summary

Cytotoxic T-lymphocytes (CTLs) kill abnormal cells. CTLs recognize major histocompatibility complex class I molecules in complex with peptides derived from relevant antigens. The identification of tumor associated antigen peptides enabled the design of anti-tumor and anti-metastatic vaccines in a murine lung carcinoma.
