Systematic name M10018
Brief description Genes up-regulated in macrophages: control versus tumor associated.
Full description or abstract Active immunotherapy is a promising strategy for anti-angiogenic cancer therapy. Recently, we have reported that a vaccine using human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) induced specific anti-endothelial immune responses in the most of immunized patients, and resulted in tumor regression in some patients with recurrent malignant brain tumors, whereas not in colorectal cancer patients. In this study, we hypothesized that non-hypoxic perivascular tumor associated macrophages (TAMs) in colorectal cancer, but not in glioblastoma, might negatively alter the therapeutic efficacy of anti-angiogenic active immunotherapy. To test this hypothesis, we examined global gene expression profiles of non-hypoxic macrophages stimulated in vitro by soluble factors released from tumor cells of human glioblastoma U-87MG (?brain TAMs?) or colorectal adenocarcinoma HT-29 (?colon TAMs?).
