Sammanfattning : In this thesis, two different vaccines were evaluated as adjuvant therapy for patients with colorectal cancer. The ability of the two candidate vaccines to generate antigen-speciﬁc cellular and humoral responses, respectively, was studied. LÄS MER
2. Antibody-based Cancer Immunotherapy : Personalization, response prediction and safety considerations
Sammanfattning : Antibody-based therapeutics have remarkably improved the field of immuno-oncology. Multiple monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) are approved for clinical use, and numerous antibodies are under clinical development. The scope of this thesis is to study the personalization of antibody-based immunotherapeutics and tools to predict their efficacy and safety. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : CD40-CD40L interaction activates DCs to become highly efficient APCs and skews the adaptive immune response towards a Th I phenotype driving cytotoxic T cells, M1 macrophages and natural killer cells. Furthermore, engagement of CD40L to CD40 positive cancer cells can have direct anti-proliferative effects, induce apoptosis and increase expression of MHC and other co-stimulatory molecules, thereby enhancing cancer cell recognition.

Sammanfattning : There is no established predictive marker for the treatment of metastatic renal cell cancer (mRCC) patients. With a predictive marker, patients unlikely to respond could be selected upfront and offered other therapy options. Thereby, unnecessary toxicity could be avoided and costs would be reduced. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Malignant melanoma (MM) is the deadliest skin cancer with an ever-increasing incidence. New treatments have improved the prognosis for patients with advanced MM. Still, most patients do not respond, and the side effects can be severe, underlining the need for better therapies. LÄS MER
