To induce Her2-specific cell immune response, we used xenogeneic antigen rat neu L2-S2 domains as the vaccine antigen. The antigenic protein was engineered as a chimeric protein with human IgG1 Fc region (neu-Fc). Neu-Fc could stimulate the cell proliferation in mixed lymphocyte reaction effectively. Simultaneous neu-Fc and IFN-gamma stimulation dramatically elevated IL-12 secretion and reduced IL-10 production in PBMC. To further augment the activating effects on Th1-type response, Bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG) was utilized as a non-specific stimulus. Neu-Fc, IFN-gamma and BCG costimulation exhibited the most conspicuous effects on the reversal of the Th1-type inhibitory effects by MCF-7 cell supernatant compared with neu-Fc alone or IFN-gamma and BCG costimulation. The lytic activity of effector cells to Her2 overexpressing cells was greatly promoted by neu-Fc, IFN-gamma and BCG stimulation simultaneously. Neu-Fc led to considerable retardation in EMT6/Her2 tumour growth in Balb/c mice. IFN-gamma and BCG efficiently enhanced the antitumour activity. A large amount of inflammatory cells were found to be accumulated in the tumour tissues or surrounded tumours in mice treated with neu-Fc, IFN-gamma and BCG but no inflammatory cell infiltration was observed in control tumours, indicating that the strategy is potent enough to support the initiation and propagation of tumour-specific immune response in an established tumour and generate a proinflammatory environment.
