Title
(EN) Methods and means for the treatment of malignancies
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention provides novel means and methods for eliminating unwanted cells or organisms from a (mammalian) subject. In particular tumors can be combatted using the compositions according to the present invention. In a preferred embodiment solid tumors are injected with a burst of cytokine (in particular IL-1a or IL-3) together with a slow release source for a cytokine. To further boost the immune system an adjuvans is preferred. In a preferred embodiment the source for the slow release cytokine is a recombinant adenovirus. In an especially preferred embodiment the adjuvant comprises inactivated (cracked) adenovirus producing cells.
