Immuno-Genomic Classification of Colorectal Cancer Organoids Reveals Cancer Cells with Intrinsic Immunogenic Properties Associated with Patient Survival

Investigators developed a patient-derived colorectal cancer organoid model and performed pairwise analysis of 87 CCOs and their matched primary tumors. The tumor immune microenvironment type of the primary tumor was classified as immuno-active, immuno-exhausted, or immuno-desert.

Telomere Dysfunction Instigates Inflammation in Inflammatory Bowel Disease

In murine intestinal epithelium with telomere dysfunction, DNA damage-induced activation of ataxia-telangiectasia mutated (ATM) resulted in ATM-mediated phosphorylation and activation of the YAP1 transcriptional coactivator, which in turn up-regulated pro-IL-18, a pivotal immune regulator in inflammatory bowel disease pathogenesis.

Morphological Screening of Mesenchymal Mammary Tumor Organoids to Identify Drugs That Reverse Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition

Scientists reported that cells derived from claudin-low mammary tumors, a mesenchymal subtype of triple-negative breast cancer, exhibited a distinctive organoid structure with extended “spikes” in 3D matrices.

A Human Three-Dimensional Neural-Perivascular ‘Assembloid’ Promotes Astrocytic Development and Enables Modeling of SARS-CoV-2 Neuropathology

Pericytes are perivascular cells within the brain that are proposed as SARS-CoV-2 infection points. Scientists showed that pericyte-like cells, when integrated into a cortical organoid, were capable of infection with authentic SARS-CoV-2.
