Quantification of Wilms tumor gene (WT1) transcripts and of immune activation to monitor the therapeutic efficacy of denditric cell vaccination in acute myeloid leukemia. 01/09/2012 - 31/08/2015


In this project, we want to investigate the predictive value of WTt RNA levels in peripheral blood as a tumor marker for scoring effectiveness of WT1-targeted DC vaccination in AML patients and for predicting relapse. In addition to the tumor marker, we will also examine the tumor microenvironment by monitoring immune activation to judge response to the therapeutic cancer vaccine. In this way, we will be able to distinguish patients responding to the therapeutic DC vaccine from patients at high risk for relapse that need intensified follow-up and appropriate treatment at the moment of relapse.
