Adoptive T Cell Therapy Targeting Different Gene Products Reveals Diverse and Context-Dependent Immune Evasion in Melanoma

Targeting melanosomal proteins or oncogenic CDK4R24C by adoptive cell transfer of the same epitope-specific CD8+ T cells revealed diverse genetic and non-genetic immune escape mechanisms.

Overexpression of miR-382 Sensitizes Hepatocellular Carcinoma Cells to γδ T Cells through Inhibiting the Expression of C-Flip

As miR-382 was observed to be downregulated in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tissues and cell lines, researchers found that overexpression of miR-382 increased the sensitivity of HCC cells to γδ T cells.

Comparative Study between Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells and Etanercept as Immunomodulatory Agents in Rat Model of Rheumatoid Arthritis

Adipose tissue mesenchymal stem cells were able to delay the onset of collagen-induced arthritis, suppress the ongoing clinical and histopathological signs, decrease serum levels of TNF-α and anti-collagen type II, and downregulate the autoreactive T cells as etanercept.

Spatiotemporal PET Imaging Reveals Differences in CAR-T Tumor Retention in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Models

Researchers generated and characterized traceable CAR T cells and examined potential negative effects of radionuclide reporter use. They applied the platform to two different triple-negative breast cancer models and unexpectedly observed pronounced differences in CAR-T tumor retention by PET/computed tomography and confirmed data ex vivo.

Regulatory T Cells Suppress Th17 Cell Ca2+ Signaling in the Spinal Cord during Murine Autoimmune Neuroinflammation

Investigators used two-photon microscopy to elucidate the spatial organization, motility characteristics, and interactions of endogenous Treg and Th17 cells together with antigen-presenting cells within the spinal cord leptomeninges in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, an animal model of multiple sclerosis.

The Immunology of Renal Cell Carcinoma

Renal cell carcinoma is considered to be an immunogenic tumor but is known to mediate immune dysfunction in large part by eliciting the infiltration of immune-inhibitory cells, such as regulatory T cells and myeloid-derived suppressor cells, into the tumor microenvironment.
