A Potential New Melanoma Cancer Vaccine

Abstract # 3044 : KBMA Listeria monocytogenes is an effective antigen loading platform for dendritic cell-mediated induction of anti-tumor immunity

NYU Langone Medical Center researchers report that killed but metabolically active recombinant Listeria monocytogenes, a Gram-positive bacterium, may provide a platform for novel melanoma vaccines. Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, and will afflict some 62,480 people in the United States this year. The researchers demonstrate in an animal model and in vitro human cell cultures that immune cells were called into action by tumor proteins expressed by the bacterium. The finding suggests that the genetically engineered bacterium may be used to bolster the immune response against a resurgence of the deadly cancer. Clinical trials are underway at the medical center using a melanoma vaccine that employs powerful immune cells called dendritic cells. The bacterial approach to activate the dendritic cells may provide a new avenue for developing a more powerful cancer vaccine.
