Abstract:

The purpose of this research is to develop an autologous breast cancer vaccine whose immunogenicity we hypothesize will be significantly enhanced by the ectopic expression of the human T cell co-stimulatory molecule, B7-1. In the past year, the feasibility of short-term culture of human breast cancer cells harvested from metastatic sites has been clearly demonstrated.
