Profiles and Research Field

Dr. Kageyama has been working on cancer immunotherapy since 1998. As a medical oncologist and hematologist, he has been developing and conducting clinical trials. Dr. Kageyama and his colleges use their original cancer vaccine consisting of CHP-nanogel and tumor antigen. They developed CHP-HER2, CHP-MAGE-A4 and CHP-NY-ESO-1, and have been working on early clinical trials. Since 1995, collaborating with Takara Bio Inc., they have developed TCR-gene transduced T cell therapy. The clinical trials they have been studying are MAGE-A4 TCR-gene transduced cell adoptive transfer for esophageal cancer, WT1 TCR-gene therapy for AML and MDS, and NY-ESO-1 TCR-gene therapy for all diseases. They are now conducting phase 1/2 clinical trial of NY-ESO-1 TCR-T combined with novel cancer vaccine, NE-1, and CpG for soft tissue sarcoma.
