This work is part of a research project of INMUNOTEK for the characterization of the Ca10 tumor epitope.  The project has the collaboration of the Molecular Biology Center (CIB-CSIC) and the San Carlos Clinical Hospital of Madrid. The Ca10 tumor epitope is being used for the development of a new carbohydrate-based cancer vaccine.
