Cancer immunotherapy: the role regulatory T cells play and what can be done to overcome their inhibitory effects. - Current molecular medicine
Since multiple lines of experimental and clinical data clearly identified regulatory T cells as an integral part of the immune response, these cells have become a major focus of investigation in tumor immunology. Regulatory T cells are in place to dampen ongoing immune responses and to prevent autoimmunity, but they also have profound effects in blocking therapeutic anti-tumor activity. Therefore regulatory T cells are seen as a major hurdle that must be overcome in order for cancer immunotherapy to reach its therapeutic potential. Regulatory T cells are heterogeneous with sub-populations that exhibit distinct functional features. Here we will review the individual sub-populations in regards to their mode of action and their potential impact on blocking anti-tumor immunity. Approaches to measure function and frequency of regulatory T cells in model systems and clinical trails will be discussed. Finally, we will describe possible ways to interfere with regulatory T cell-mediated immune suppression with the focus on recent pre-clinical and clinical findings.
Vaccination of women with metastatic breast cancer, using a costimulatory gene (CD80)-modified, HLA-A2-matched, allogeneic, breast cancer cell line: clinical and immunological results. - Human gene therapy
MDA-MB-231, an HLA-A2(+), HER2/neu(+) allogeneic breast cancer cell line genetically modified to express the costimulatory molecule CD80 (B7-1), was used to vaccinate 30 women with previously treated stage IV breast cancer. Expression of CD80 conferred the ability to deliver a costimulatory signal and thereby improved the antigen presentation capability of the tumor cells to patient T cells in vitro. Patients were vaccinated with 10(7) or 10(8) irradiated gene-modified tumor cells with granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) or BCG, three times at 2-week intervals and then monthly until progressive disease developed. GM-CSF-related flulike symptoms and minor injection site reactions were observed frequently. Prolonged disease stabilization was observed in four patients but no objective tumor regressions were seen. Immune responses were measured in matched peripheral blood samples collected before and after treatment from 9 of 15 patients treated at the 10(8) tumor cell dose. Four patients exhibited MHC class I-restricted cytokine production in response to the parental breast cancer cell line. One patient maintained an increased number of circulating tumor-specific, interferon gamma-secreting CD8(+) T cells for 24 months after the last vaccination. One patient exhibited a tumor-specific interleukin 5 response to an autologous tumor cell line. This immunization strategy proved to be safe and feasible, and induced tumor-specific immune responses in a minority of patients; however, no objective tumor regressions were observed.
