Personalized peptide vaccine-induced immune response associated with long-term survival of a metastatic cholangiocarcinoma patient
Journal of Hepatology | July 2016
Metastatic cholangiocarcinomas, cancers that originate from the liver bile ducts, have very limited treatment options and a fatal prognosis. We describe a novel therapeutic approach in such a patient using a personalized multi-peptide vaccine. This vaccine, developed based on the characterization of…
