This protein, which is made by several types of cancers including bladder cancer, has been associated with shorter times to development of metastases and reduced survival in bladder cancer. The vaccine in this study is expected to cause the immune system to attack human chorionic gonadotropin- Vaccine and Cancer Therapy for Genitourinary Tumors 31 beta-producing bladder cancer cells to kill or terminate metastasis. This study is expected to conclude in October 2017. 5.

2000). A second study used a hybrid vaccine of allogeneic dendritic cells and irradiated autologous tumor cells in 17 patients with renal cell carcinoma. Patients received the vaccine by injection followed by a second injection six weeks later. Patients who demonstrated no evidence of disease progression received further booster injections every three months. The vaccine was well tolerated with mild to moderate fever and tumor pain as the only adverse events observed. , 2006). Of interest, the dendritic cell hybrid vaccine induced cytotoxic T cells reactive with mucin1 tumor-associated antigen—these results need to be further confirmed in larger, randomized trials.
