Discovery of public tumor-specific neoantigens (pTSNAs) and pTSNA-reactive T cells arisen from hotspot mutations in canine hemangiosarcoma

Researchers will build on their discovery of “hotspot” mutations (tumor mutations shared between patients with the same cancer) to see if they can identify public tumor-specific neoantigens (pTSNAs) that are thought to play a role in immune response to cancer….
