Interactive Cell Marker Tool: CD Markers and Beyond

Tuesday, May 7, 2019 - 13:59
Cell Markers

Start Searching for Cell Markers

Researchers and clinicians have long relied on the expression of cell surface markers to identify cell populations. In fact, this has led to an ever-growing list of CD (Cluster of Differentiation) markers characterized to identify immune cells, primarily. However, the horizons of cellular identification have expanded beyond immunology into neuroscience and stem cell research leading to publications identifying additional cell populations with more refined lists of cell surface, intracellular and secreted molecules. In addition, organelle-associated markers are co-stained with subcellular molecules to define the subcellular localization of the molecule of interest.

We have introduced a new interactive cell marker tool to...

Cell and Gene Therapies for Cancer: Future Promises and Challenges

Friday, March 8, 2019 - 10:25

Featured speakers:

J. Joseph Melenhorst, Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania

Laurence J. N. Cooper, M.D., Ph.D., Ziopharm Oncology

Moderated by:

Sean Sanders, Ph.D., Science/AAAS

The field of immuno-oncology has exploded in the clinic, in the press, and on Wall Street, particularly regarding the use of genetically modified immune cells to fight cancer. This “explosion” is largely due to the success of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy. The fields of immunology and gene therapy have converged to harness recombinant viruses to deliver “living drugs” with remarkable clinical efficacy, especially for patients with blood cancers. Multiple approaches to engineer immune cells—mostly T cells but also other immune cell types—make use of CARs, while tumor-specific T-cell receptors continue to gain a foothold...

Anti-idiotype Antibodies: Monoclonal Therapeutic Discovery and Development

Monday, March 4, 2019 - 16:12
Anti-Idiotype Antibodies

The monoclonal antibody therapy market is rapidly expanding with all major pharmaceutical companies seeking approval of more antibody drug modalities each year. In addition, many of the blockbuster monoclonal therapeutics are nearing the end of their patents and the opportunity for biosimilars looms in the marketplace.

Researchers look to anti-idiotype antibodies to study new monoclonal therapeutic candidates, to better understand the efficacy of existing monoclonal therapeutics and to evaluate the development of biosimilars. An anti-idiotype (anti-ID) antibody is specific to the unique antigen binding (variable) region of another antibody. In this case, the anti-idiotype is specific to the monoclonal therapeutic or its biosimilar.
