Immunotherapy Feasible For Some Patients With Colon Cancer

WESTPORT, Dec 31 (Reuters Health) - Immunotherapy with an

autologous tumor cell vaccine is beneficial for a subset of

patients, according to the results of a phase III study.  Dr.

Jules E. Harris of Rush-Presbyterian-St.  Luke's Medical Center

in Chicago, Illinois, and multicenter colleagues studied 412

patients with stage II or III colon cancer who underwent surgical

resection.  Subsequently, patients were randomly assigned to

observation or to three weekly injections of irradiated

autologous tumor cells, beginning about 4 weeks postoperatively.
