Cancer Testis Antigen Burden: A Novel Predictive Biomarker for Immunotherapy in Solid Tumors

SITC 2021 -- When expressed in cancer cells, cancer testis antigens (CTAs) are highly immunogenic and have the capacity to elicit cancer-specific immune responses in diverse malignancies. With their expression limited to tumor cells, CTAs have become a prime target of natural T cell response, immune cell-based therapy, and cancer vaccines. In this study, we investigated CTA burden in real-world clinical tumors spanning multiple histologies, revealing a novel prognostic gene expression-based biomarker.
