Vaccines that can coordinately induce multi-epitope T cell-mediated immunity, T helper functions, and immunologic memory may offer effective tools for cancer immunotherapy. Here, we report the development of a new class of recombinant protein cancer vaccines that deliver different CD8(+)...

The Journal of clinical investigation, 125(6), 2347-2362 (2015-05-06)
Chronic infections induce a complex immune response that controls pathogen replication, but also causes pathology due to sustained inflammation. Ca2+ influx mediates T cell function and immunity to infection, and patients with inherited mutations in the gene encoding the Ca2+...

The maturation of dendritic cells into more-immunostimulatory dendritic cells by stimulation with different combinations of immunologic agents is expected to provide efficient, adoptive immunotherapy against cancer. Soluble β-glucan maitake D-fraction, extracted from the maitake mushroom Grifola frondosa, acts as a...

Human exposure to high-linear energy transfer α-particles includes environmental (e.g. radon gas and its decay progeny), medical (e.g. radiopharmaceuticals) and occupational (nuclear industry) sources. The associated health risks of α-particle exposure for lung cancer are well documented however the risk...

PloS one, 9(9), e108414-e108414 (2014-10-01)
There are currently no established radiological parameters that predict response to immunotherapy. We hypothesised that multiparametric, longitudinal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of physiological parameters and pharmacokinetic models might detect early biological responses to immunotherapy for glioblastoma targeting NG2/CSPG4 with mAb9.2.27...

6q21 genetic deletion has been frequently detected in extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma, nasal type (EN-NK/T-NT), and PRDM1 is considered as candidate gene. However, direct detection of PRDM1 deletion has not been well documented. We investigated genetic alterations of 6q21 and...

We expanded flow-sorted Foxp3(+) cynomolgus monkey regulatory T cells (Treg) >1000-fold after three rounds of stimulation with anti-CD3 mAb-loaded artificial antigen-presenting cells, rapamycin (first round only) and IL-2. The expanded Treg maintained their expression of Treg signature markers, CD25, CD27...

Immunology, 143(2), 193-201 (2014-04-15)
Methods for identifying physiologically relevant CD8 T-cell epitopes are critically important not only for the development of T-cell-based vaccines but also for understanding host-pathogen interactions. As experimentally mapping an optimal CD8 T-cell epitope is a tedious procedure, many bioinformatic tools...

The production and delivery of functional perforin (PRF; PRF1 gene) by cytotoxic lymphocytes maintains immune homeostasis and tumour immune surveillance. In humans, inheritance of the common PRF1 polymorphism, p.A91V, (c.272C>T) found in 8-9% of the Caucasian population, with another mutated...

Journal of autoimmunity, 53, 26-32 (2014-02-26)
Imbalance between effector and regulatory T-cells (Treg) underlies the loss of immune-tolerance to self-antigens in autoimmune disease. In autoimmune hepatitis type 2 (AIH-2), effector CD4 T-cell immune responses to cytochrome P450IID6 (CYP2D6) are permitted by numerically and functionally impaired Treg....

Scientific reports, 5, 12490-12490 (2015-08-01)
We have developed a rapid negative selection method to enrich rare mononuclear cells from human tissues. Unwanted and antibody-tethered cells are selectively depleted during a Ficoll separation step, and there is no need for magnetic-based reagents and equipment. The new...

Cancer immunology, immunotherapy : CII, 64(5), 551-562 (2015-02-14)
The standard treatment of high-grade glioma presents a combination of radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery. Immunotherapy is proposed as a potential adjunct to standard cytotoxic regimens to target remaining microscopic disease following resection. We have shown ex vivo expanded/activated γδ T...

Journal of immunology (Baltimore, Md. : 1950), 193(5), 2587-2599 (2014-07-30)
Adoptive immunotherapy with Ag-specific T lymphocytes is a powerful strategy for cancer treatment. However, most tumor Ags are nonreactive "self" proteins, which presents an immunotherapy design challenge. Recent studies have shown that tumor-specific TCRs can be transduced into normal PBLs...

It has been reported that HIV-1-specific cytotoxic T cells (CTL) recognizing the HLA-A2-restricted p17 epitope SLYNTVATL (SL9) can cross-react with the HLA-A2-restricted influenza matrix epitope GILGFVFTL (GL9). So far, the prevalence of GL9-cross-reacting HIV-1-specific CTL in larger cohorts of HIV-1-infected...

EGFR/HER2 are frequently expressed in MPM tissues, however, no studies have shown the clinical benefit of using EGFR/HER2-targeting drugs in patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM). It was reported that the tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) lapatinib enhanced trastuzumab-mediated antibody-dependent cellular...

We previously reported that IL-2 deprivation induced acid sphingomyelinase-mediated (ASM-mediated) ceramide elevation and apoptosis in an NK/T lymphoma cell line KHYG-1. However, the molecular mechanism of ASM-ceramide-mediated apoptosis during IL-2 deprivation is poorly understood. Here, we showed that IL-2 deprivation...

Idiopathic CD4 lymphopenia constitutes a heterogeneous group of immunodeficiencies with characteristically low CD4+ T-cell counts with largely unknown genetic etiology. We here sought to determine the underlying molecular cause in an index family with two patients suffering from combined immunodeficiency...
