Background: Glioma is a deadly neurological tumor. For modern management of glioma, glioma vaccinotherapy is the new concept. Materials and Methods: Based on present biomedical technique, the identification of T-cell epitopes via MHC mapping can help clarify the inter-relationship of tumor and immune system. This process can be performed using advanced immunoinformatics technique. Results: Here, the author performs an immunoinformatics analysis to find alternative epitopes for glioma-related antigen, EPHA2. Conclusion: After complete manipulation on EPHA2 molecules, the five best epitopes were derived.
