1. Antigenic proteins formed by metabolic pathways (for example, drug metabolism).
2. Synonym(s): tumor antigens

tu·mor an·ti·gens

(tū'mŏr an'ti-jenz)
1. Those antigens that may be frequently associated with tumors or may be specifically found on tumor cells of the same origin (tumor specific).
2. Tumor antigens may also be associated with replication and transformation by certain DNA tumor viruses, including adenoviruses and papovaviruses.
See also: T antigens
Synonym(s): neoantigens, tumour antigens.

As recognition of neoantigens that result from somatic nonsynonymous mutations is associated with improved clinical responses to anti-PD-1 and anti-PD-L1 therapy, we hypothesized that patients with DM might respond well to anti-PD-1 or anti-PD-L1 therapies, owing to their high mutational load," Dr.

The company combined its vectored genetic vaccine encoding multiple cancer neoantigens that are capable of inducing potent and broad T cell responses, with NKTR-214, developed to expand the specific population
This vaccine works by using multiple mutated proteins or neoantigens that are specifically tied to an individual's tumor.
Moderna and Merck will develop personalized cancer vaccines that utilize Moderna's mRNA vaccine technology to encode a patient's specific neoantigens, unique mutations present in that specific patient's tumor.
Indeed, in human lymphoblastoma-derived MCL-5 cells transfected with various human CYPs (hCYP), hCYP2B6 (and, to a lesser extent, hCYP2C8 and hCYP1A2) was able to catalyze the reaction of PERC to acetylated neoantigens, which were recognized by immunoreactivity to anti-trifluoroacetylated antibodies (White et al.
Unlike previously tested cancer vaccinations that produced no concrete evidence of effectiveness, the injections targeted neoantigens, specific proteins that are unique to each person's individual tumor.
Genomic analysis was performed and identified 578 potential mutation-associated neoantigens in the MMR-defective groups (compared with only 21 in the MMR-proficient tumors).
