Binding and Efficacy of Anti-Robo4 CAR-T Cells against Solid Tumors.

Biomedicines 2022 May 30;10(6). Epub 2022 May 30.

Project for Vaccine and Immune Regulation, Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Osaka University, 1-6 Yamadaoka, Suita, Osaka 565-0871, Japan.

Chimeric antigen receptor expression T (CAR-T) cell therapy has been shown be efficacious against relapsed/refractory B-cell malignant lymphoma and has attracted attention as an innovative cancer treatment. However, cells of solid tumors are less accessible to CAR-T cells; moreover, CAR-T function is decreased in the immunosuppressive state of the tumor microenvironment. Since most tumors induce angiogenesis, we constructed CAR-T cells targeting roundabout homolog 4 (Robo4), which is expressed at high levels in tumor vascular endothelial cells, by incorporating three anti-Robo4 single-chain variable fragments (scFv) that were identified using phage display.

In-depth characterization of intratumoral heterogeneity in refractory B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma through the lens of a Research Autopsy Program.

Haematologica 2022 Jun 23. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Princess Margaret Cancer Centre - University Health Network, Toronto, ON.

Intratumoral heterogeneity (ITH) provides the substrate for tumor evolution and treatment resistance, yet is remarkably understudied in lymphoma, due to the often limited amount of tissue that gets sampled during the routine diagnostic process, generally from a single nodal or extranodal site. Furthermore, the trajectory of how lymphoma, and especially non-Hodgkin lymphoma, spreads throughout the human body remains poorly understood. Here, we present a detailed characterization of ITH by applying whole genome sequencing to spatially separated tumor samples harvested at the time of autopsy (n = 24) and/or diagnosis (n = 3) in three patients presenting with refractory B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
