CAR-TCR Summit 2017

CAR TCR Summit 2017 - Seaport World Trade Center

By Janice Frias, Ph.D., Bio-Techne Scientist

The CAR-TCR Summit in Boston from September 5-8 could not have had a better venue than the Seaport World Trade Center. The space was the perfect size for a group like this. It was able to accommodate all the concurrent talks and expo, yet keep the attendees in still a rather intimate setting to encourage interaction. And a glance out the window at the Boston Harbor in between talks was a nice perk.

The summit was very timely in that the week prior, the Novartis CAR T therapy, Kymriah, received FDA approval to fight leukemia in children and young adults. This was a hot topic, sparking speculation about who is...

Immunology News: Researchers Report the Identification of a New Regulatory Innate Lymphoid Cell Subset that Suppresses Innate Intestinal Inflammation

Regulatory ILCs Suppress ILC1- and ILC3-Induced Innate Intestinal Inflammation

Regulatory ILCs Suppress ILC1- and ILC3-Induced Innate Intestinal Inflammation

Innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) are a recently described population of lymphocytes that play a critical role in innate immune responses and tissue remodeling. Multiple studies suggest that ILCs are particularly important for maintaining epithelial barriers and regulating immune responses at mucosal surfaces such as the lungs and intestines. Similar to T cells, ILCs consist of several subtypes that are characterized by the expression of different transcription factors and cytokines, and these correspond with the...

A Role for VSIG-3/VISTA Signaling in Acquired Resistance to Anti-PD-1 Therapy?

星期三, 八月 23, 2017 - 09:33
t-cell and tumor cell

Immunotherapy has revolutionized the way we treat cancer. Ground breaking studies have demonstrated that co-signaling molecules such as cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated protein 4 (CTLA-4), programmed cell death 1 (PD-1) receptor, and programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1) are an important therapeutic targets. However, these victories have been tempered by the development of acquired resistance in some cases. Why is this happening? What are the mechanisms of acquired resistance to immune checkpoint blockade?

Zika virus (ZIKV) is a mosquito-borne, single-stranded, positive-sense RNA virus belonging to the Flaviviridae family. It is closely related to other members of the Flavivirus genus including dengue virus, West Nile virus, yellow fever virus, tick-borne encephalitis virus, and Japanese encephalitis virus. ZIKV was first isolated from a rhesus monkey in Uganda in 1947 and the first human cases were detected in the 1950s in Uganda, Tanzania, and Nigeria. Since that time, there have been significant outbreaks in Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific Islands, but the...

Can Caner Immunotherapy Principles Be Applied to Neurodegenerative Diseases?

Alzheimer's disease, a progressive, neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system, is the most common form of dementia. It is estimated that 44 million people worldwide have Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. Alzheimer’s disease has proved difficult to treat, mainly because the symptoms of the disease only emerge years after disease onset. The treatments that are currently available for Alzheimer’s disease only help to ease the symptoms of the disease; they do not slow or stop its progression. The goal of Alzheimer’s disease research is to develop effective therapies that stop or prevent the underlying cause of the disease.
