Scientists tested whether sequential immunization induces stronger and broader immunity against four dengue virus serotypes than tetravalent-formulated immunization.
Researchers present a bypass around these toxicities by targeting the activity of IL-1β to CD8+ T cells. Using this approach, they demonstrated safe inclusion of IL-1β as an adjuvant in vaccination strategies, leading to full protection of mice against a high influenza virus challenge dose by raising potent T cell responses.
Treatment‐naïve patients with metastatic colorectal cancer were assessed for CD8+ tumor-infiltrating lymphocutes and PD‐L1 expression. Microsatellite instability was evaluated by IHC for PMS2 and MSH6 proteins and/or by PCR using the Bethesda panel.

To examine donor cell survival and host immune reaction, pig bone marrow‐derived mesenchymal stem cells were labeled with CM‐DiI, loaded onto gelatin sponge, and transplanted into 5‐mm mandibular defects of immunocompetent and T cell‐deficient athymic rats.

Overall survival by immune and immune-checkpoint biomarkers in independent colorectal cancer cohorts was evaluated. Matched mutational and transcriptomic data were interrogated to identify associated biology.

Investigators showed that Bacillus Calmette–Guérin (GCG)-induced bladder tumor elimination required CD4 and CD8 T cells, although augmentation or inhibition of bacterial antigen-specific T cell responses did not alter the efficacy of BCG-induced tumor elimination.

Cyclophosphamide (CTX) increased expression of tumor cell PD-L1; however, when combined with concomitant PD-L1 antibody therapy none of the CTX regimens showed increased benefit.
