Hi. My name is Ben Seon. Today I'm going to talk about human tumor antigens as the therapeutic target of cancer.

Tumor cells express many different type of antigens. And I listed some of these antigens that potentially can be used for targeting purposes. First, products of oncogenes and the tumor suppressor gene products and cancer-Testis antigen, oncofetal antigen, differentiation antigen, and angiogensesis associated antigen, and immune checkpoint molecule. Traditionally, immune checkpoint molecule is not included in the tumor antigens. But due to recent successes by James Allison and his group, and also others, for targeting this molecule, I include it here. However, I'm not going to talk about this one because other speakers will discuss this topic in this series of lectures.
