Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is involved in physiological angiogenesis, but also is considered one of the key factors that promotes tumor angiogenesis. CIGB-247 is a VEGF-based vaccine that has been evaluated in phase I clinical trial patients with advanced solid tumors. This specific active immunotherapy is able to reduce platelet VEGF levels; however it is unknown...

Active immunization with human interleukin-15 induces neutralizing antibodies in non-human primates

Our approach to neutralize IL-15 consisted in active immunization with structurally modified human IL...
