Description: BioMedTracker has separate drug profiles for vitespen. Please also see Oncophage.

Oncophage is a personalized vaccine designed to treat cancer while minimizing side effects. It utilizes a proprietary heat shock protein technology in which antigens and heat shock proteins (HSP) from the patient's own tumor cells are isolated. This mixture of antigens and HSP is then re-introduced to the patient as a vaccine to stimulate the patient's immune system to fight the tumor from which the proteins were derived.
