Survivin is overexpressed in several types of haematological malignancies making it an attractive target for therapeutic cytotoxic T-lymphocyte responses. Here, we identify two peptide epitopes derived from the murine survivin protein and demonstrate that Balb/c mice treated with syngeneic dendritic cells pulsed with the survivin epitopes were able to reject an otherwise lethal tumour inoculation of the A20 lymphoma. For the first time, these data provide evidence for the use of survivin peptide epitopes in T cell-based immunotherapeutic concepts against a B-cell lymphoma in vivo.
