Scientists introduced a collagen-based 3D matrix to embed Raw264.7 cell line and primary rat bone marrow-derived macrophages.
In all human cells, human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class I glycoproteins assemble with a peptide and takes it to the cell surface for surveillance by lymphocytes.

Researchers showed that IL-18BP, a high-affinity IL-18 decoy receptor, was frequently upregulated in diverse human and mouse tumors and limited the anti-tumor activity of IL-18 in mice.
Scientists demonstrated T cells could be re-engineered to express functional argininosuccinate synthase or ornithine transcarbamylase enzymes, in concert with different chimeric antigen receptors.

Through genome-wide CRISPR activation and knockout screens in Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALCL) cell lines combined with RNA-seq data derived from ALK inhibitor relapsed patient tumors, researchers showed that resistance to ALK inhibition by crizotinib in ALCL could be driven by aberrant upregulation of IL10RA.
Scientists summarize the research advances related to oncolytic viruses that express immunomodulatory transgenes, as well as potential treatment pitfalls in patients with malignant gliomas.

Foundations that fund biomedical research in the United States, the United Kingdom, and elsewhere are reporting record revenue drops because of the pandemic. One major factor: It has forced them to cancel key fundraising events, including glitzy galas, sponsored walks, Broadway partnerships, and more.
Investigators tested whether the inflammatory nature of oncolytic viruses and their ability to remodel the tumor microenvironment may help to recruit and potentiate the functionality of CAR T cells.

Scientists showed that the Na+/Ca2+ exchanger 1 played a critical role in high salt-triggered Na+ influx, concomitant Ca2+ efflux, and subsequent augmented NFAT5 accumulation.
Pre-clinical immuno-oncology models for studying metastases have long been limited to syngeneic or carcinogenesis-inducible models that have murine cancer and immune cells.
