|Title:||Multiple antigen glycopeptide carbohydrate vaccine comprising the same and use thereof|
|Abstract:||A carbohydrate peptide conjugate containing: (i) a carrier containing a dendrimeric poly-lysine enabling multiple epitopes to be covalently attached thereto, (ii) at least one peptide containing one T epitope or several identical or different T-epitopes, (iii) at least one carbohydrate moiety which is tumor antigen, or a derivative thereof, containing a B epitope, provided it is not a sialoside, or several identical or different epitopes, wherein said conjugate containing at least 3-lysines and up to 15 lysine covalently linked to one another, and wherein: (a) to the NH.sub.2 and of at least two lysine residues is bound at least one carbohydrate residue being not a sialoside, optionally substituted and containing an epitope and wherein the peptide containing one T epitope is covalently bound to the end of said carbohydrate which induces immune responses.|
