Shifting the Evolving CAR T Cell Platform into Higher Gear.
San Francisco, United States. In Cancer Cell, Nov 2015
In this issue of Cancer Cell, Zhao and colleagues test various chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells to show that CD28-CD3ζ CAR T cells that constitutively express 4-1BBL promote T cell expansion and tumor eradication while reducing exhaustion.
The Hematopoietic Niche in Myeloproliferative Neoplasms.
Freiburg, Germany. In Mediators Inflamm, 2014
A complex microenvironment adjacent to the marrow vasculature (vascular niche) and close to the endosteum (endosteal niche) harbors multiple cell types including mesenchymal stromal cells and their derivatives such as CAR cells expressing high levels of chemokines C-X-C motif ligand 12 and early osteoblastic lineage cells, endothelial cells, and megakaryocytes.
The Application of Natural Killer Cell Immunotherapy for the Treatment of Cancer.
Houston, United States. In Front Immunol, 2014
In this review, we will focus on recent advances in the field of NK cell immunotherapy, including augmentation of antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity, manipulation of receptor-mediated activation, and adoptive immunotherapy with ex vivo-expanded, chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-engineered, or engager-modified NK cells.
