Glioblastoma multiforme is the most frequent and most malignant primary brain tumor with poor prognosis despite surgical removal and radio-chemotherapy. In this setting, immunotherapeutical strategies have great potential, but the reported repertoire of tumor associated antigens is only for HLA-A 02 positive tumors. We describe the first analysis of HLA-peptide presentation patterns in HLA-A 02 negative glioma tissue combined with gene expression profiling of the tumor samples by oligonucleotide microarrays. We identified numerous candidate peptides for immunotherapy. These are peptides derived from proteins with a well-described role in glioma tumor biology and suitable gene expression profiles such as PTPRZ1, EGFR, SEC61G and TNC. Information obtained from complementary analyses of HLA-A 02 negative tumors not only contributes to the discovery of novel shared glioma antigens, but most importantly provides the opportunity to tailor a patient-individual cocktail of tumor-associated peptides for a personalized, targeted immunotherapeutic approach in HLA-A 02 negative patients.
