The resource used is focused around how the human immune
system responds to cancer and how recognizable tumor antigens can affect immune
response. Sera was taken from patients with a few different types of tumors and
also from unaffected blood donors, then were tested via electrophoresis to show
the production of antibodies to the tumor antigen. The results conclude:
Antibodies were produced against NY-ESO except in the normal donor patients,
MAGE-1 antibodies were found in 3 patients, MAGE-3 was found in 2 patients and
the SSX2 antibody was found in 1 patient. By understanding the immune system’s
response to specific antigens in a serological based study, we can further our
exploration of cancer immunotherapy.
