Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Phase I study Biological: HLA-A*2402restricted URLC10, CDCA1, VEGFR1 and VEGFR2
Escalating doses of every peptide will be administered by subcutaneous injection on days 1,8,15 and 22 of each 28-day treatment cycles. Planned doses of peptides are 1.0mg and 3.0mg.

Detailed Description:
URLC10 and CDCA1 have been identified as cancer specific molecules especially in non small cell lung cancer using genome-wide expression profile analysis by cDNA microarray technique. We have determined the HLA-A*2402 restricted epitope peptides derived from these molecules. We also tend to use the peptides targeting to tumor angiogenesis. VEGF receptor 1 and 2 are essential targets to tumor angiogenesis, and we identified that peptides derived from these receptors significantly induce the effective tumor specific CTL response in vitro and vivo. According to these findings, in this trial, we evaluate the safety, immunological and clinical response of those peptides.
