To better understand how innate and adaptive immune responses interact with each other, we combined 4-1BB T cell costimulation with specific adjuvants to determine whether these treatments would influence specific T cell expansion and function in vivo. In the presence of 4-1BB ligation and Toll-like receptor 3 (TLR)3 and/or TLR4 triggering, CD8 T cell(More)
The phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway plays an important role in multiple myeloma (MM), a blood cancer associated with uncontrolled proliferation of bone marrow plasma cells. This study aimed to develop a robust clinical pharmacodynamic (PD) assay to measure the on-target PD effects of the selective PI3K inhibitor GDC-0941 in MM patients. We(More)
Mass cytometry is capable of measuring more than 40 distinct proteins on individual cells making it a promising technology for innovating biomarker discovery. However, in order for this potential to be fully realized, best practices in panel design need to be further defined in order to achieve consistency and reproducibility in data analysis. Of particular(More)
