Detecting cancer-specific immunity


Cancer-Testis antigens  (CTA) constitute a family of proteins that exhibit a remarkably restricted expression

in gametogenic tissue and are therefore not exposed to the systemic immune system. This means that no

immunological tolerance is established. CTA are over-expressed and cellular immune responses have been

reported in patients with a variety of tumors. CTA-specific immunity can be determined by detection of CD8+

CTA-specific T cells in peripheral blood and in tumor biopsies.  



• Accurate quantification of Cancer-specific T cells

• Specific, sensitive, reproducible

• Applicable on blood, HPBMC, tissue sections



The Cancer-testis Antigens Dextramer Collection 1 is useful for detection and isolation of cancer-specific

CD8+ T cells in a variety of applications:

• Monitoring of pre-existing immunity

• Monitoring of induced immunity

• Testing of CTA-specific vaccines

• Profiling of CTA-specific T-cell responses

The Cancer-Testis Antigens Dextramer Collection 1 consists of Dextramers displaying epitopes from 3

different Cancer-Testis antigens; NY-ESO-1, MAGE-A3 and MAGE-A1. The collection also includes a

negative control Dextramer.

Each Dextramer specificity in the collection is provided as a PE- and APC conjugate, allowing  double

staining of each cell sample to better resolve positive from negative cell populations.
