演題:CD4+ T cells and the prevention of cancer relapse after personalized immunotherapy

 

演者:Professor Hans Schreiber (Department of Pathology, The University of Chicago)

 

抄録:Achieving curative treatment of solid tumors remains the challenge of cancer therapy despite advances using checkpoint inhibitors or adoptive transfer of tumor-infiltrating T cells. These treatments can be curative or achieve long-term survival, but only in a fraction of patients and certain types of cancers. Relapse is common. When treatments are effective, mutant neoantigens seem to be the relevant immunological targets. Most of these neoantigens are encoded by nsSNVs (nonsynonymous single nucleotide variants) also referred to as “individually specific” or “unique” antigens because they differ between each cancer of a given individual even when cancers are of the same histologic type and site of origin. While the field is heavily focused on CD8+ T cells evidence will be presented that adoptive transfer of mutation-specific CD8+ T cells is commonly followed by relapse and that mutation-specific CD4+ T cells are essential for preventing cancer relapse after therapy of solid tumors.
