The first data on immunotherapy in CRC came from 1981, when the role of vaccines as immunotherapy was explored, based on the rationale of activating host defense against tumour-specific or tumour-associated antigens by means of the injection of autologous tumour cells with an immunomodulator (Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG)).
We will perform two types of RNA interference drug- and hypoxia-resistance screens: one using reverse transfection of commercial siRNA libraries into previously established RCC cell lines, and one using a novel approach through personalised tumour cDNA derived-shRNA library transduction of ex-vivo cultured autologous tumour cell lines.
