[5] A monoclonal antibody 11D10 anti-idiotype vaccine and monoclonal antibody 3H1 anti-idiotype vaccine are being used in the treatment of the patients with stage II or IIIA non-small cell lung cancer (T1-3, N1-2, M0) which is administered starting from the 14-45 days after operation.
Heinz Kohler and his colleagues at Roswell Park Memorial Institute in Buffalo are working on something called an anti-idiotype vaccine. By Presenting tumor antigens to the body in a new way, the vaccine breaks the body's preexisting tolerance to the tumor.
The development of new vaccines, such as subunit vaccines, synthetic vaccines, recombinant vaccines and anti-idiotype vaccines, which combine efficacy, innocuity, duration of protection, ease of use, stability and multivalence.
A clear progression in underlying technology platforms can be seen: from early, simple vaccines using inactivated viruses, or tumor cells and cell lysates; through to the identification of specific antigens to create more advanced viral vectors, dendritic cells, conjugated vaccines, and anti-idiotype vaccines. Among the newer technology types, DNA vaccines and prime-boost technologies can be singled out as areas of particularly exciting potential, alongside the development of vaccine combinations.
Hansen commented further: "Clinical trials with first-generation anti-idiotype vaccines in melanoma and colorectal cancer have shown some promise clinically, thus encouraging us to devise the improvements now patented, and which we believe will evoke a stronger and longer immune response." "The technology is potentially applicable to a number of different cancer types and viruses, including AIDS," he added.
