Tumor RNA Transfected Dendritic Cell Vaccines

The specific aims are: 1) to evaluate, in a phase I clinical trial, the safety of
vaccinating patients with dendritic cells transfected with RNA from autologous cancer cells;
2) to analyze the T cell responses induced by the treatment; and 3) to improve the efficacy
of the treatment by developing methods to increase the induction of CD4+T cell responses.
