Research

We have developed an animal model for diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) and established patient cell lines, which have allowed us to generate an antigenic product with which to develop vaccines.

DIPG is one of the few paediatric tumours for which there is no curative treatment today. That is why we have started the first clinical trial in the world with vaccines with autologous dendritic cells for DIPG patients.
