Immunotherapy of myelodysplastic syndrome: You can run, but you can't hide

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The hypomethylating agent decitabine induces expression of the cancer/testis antigen NY-ESO-1 in the myeloid cells of patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). Patients with MDS treated with decitabine and an NY-ESO-1 vaccine developed NY-ESO-1–specific T-cell responses directed against their abnormal myeloid cells, raising hopes for combinatorial immunotherapy of this disease.
