Monocarboxylate transporter antagonism reveals metabolic vulnerabilities of viral-driven lymphomas.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2021 Jun;118(25)

Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology, Duke Center for Virology, Duke University School of Medicine, Durham, NC 27710;

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a ubiquitous herpesvirus that typically causes asymptomatic infection but can promote B lymphoid tumors in the immune suppressed. In vitro, EBV infection of primary B cells stimulates glycolysis during immortalization into lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCLs). Lactate export during glycolysis is crucial for continued proliferation of many cancer cells-part of a phenomenon known as the "Warburg effect"- and is mediated by monocarboxylate transporters (MCTs).

Functional Phenotype Flow Cytometry: On Chip Sorting of Individual Cells According to Responses to Stimuli.

Adv Biol (Weinh) 2021 Jun 23:e2100220. Epub 2021 Jun 23.

Living Systems Institute, University of Exeter, Stocker Road, Exeter, EX4 4QD, UK.

The ability to effectively separate and isolate biological cells into specific and well-defined subpopulations is crucial for the advancement of our understanding of cellular heterogeneity and its relevance to living systems. Here is described the development of the functional phenotype flow cytometer (FPFC), a new device designed to separate cells on the basis of their in situ real-time phenotypic responses to stimuli. The FPFC performs a cascade of cell processing steps on a microfluidic platform: introduces biological cells one at a time into a solution of a biological reagent that acts as a stimulus, incubates the cells with the stimulus solution in a flow, and sorts the cells into subpopulations according to their phenotypic responses to the provided stimulus.

Circulating myeloid-derived suppressor cells and regulatory T cells as immunological biomarkers in refractory/relapsed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma: translational results from the R2-GDP-GOTEL trial.

J Immunother Cancer 2021 Jun;9(6)

Medical Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Immunology, Virgen Macarena University Hospital, Sevilla, Seville, Spain

Background: The search for immunological markers with ability of predicting clinical outcome is a priority in lymphomas, and in cancer in general. It is well known that some immunomodulatory cells, such as myeloid derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) or regulatory T cells (Tregs), are recruited by tumors, jeopardizing antitumor immunosurveillance. In this work, we have studied blood levels of these immunosuppressive cells in patients with relapsed/refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (R/R DLBCL), prior to and along the course of the experimental rituximab, gemcitabine, dexamethasone, and cisplatin (R2-GDP) schedule, as a translational substudy of the R2-GDP-GOTEL trial (EudraCT Number: 2014-001620-29), which included lenalidomide as an immunomodulator.
