Twenty percent of breast cancer adenocarcinomas overexpress the oncogene c-erb-2 that is recognized by the humanized anti-Her2/neu monoclonal antibody Herceptin. Results from clinical studies suggest that antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) is involved in the clinical response of Herceptin-treated patients. The purpose of the current study was(More)
In the context of transplantation, donor and virus-specific T-lymphocyte infusions have demonstrated the dramatic potential of T cells as immune effectors. Unfortunately, most attempts to exploit the T-cell immune system against nonviral malignancies in the syngeneic setting have been disappointing. In contrast, treatments based on monoclonal antibodies(More)
Human memory T cells are comprised of distinct populations with different homing potential and effector functions: central memory T cells that mount recall responses to Ags in secondary lymphoid organs, and effector memory T cells that confer immediate protection in peripheral tissues. In the present study we demonstrate that a proportion of effector memory(More)
We report herein the results we obtained and the limitations we experienced during the production and use of a bank of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-transformed human cytotoxic T lymphocytes (EBV-CTLs). To assess the feasibility and toxicity of this strategy, we selected and stored, in liquid nitrogen, 4 billion EBV-CTLs from each of the 13 selected donors.(More)
We have previously proposed the use of HLA-specific T-cell clones transduced with a suicide gene to produce an allogeneic effect that can be controlled after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. Procedures described so far to obtain specific T-cells transduced with a suicide gene have led to the recovery of heterogeneous polyclonal T-cells with a limited(More)
T lymphocytes engineered to express chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) interact directly with cell surface molecules, bypassing MHC antigen presentation dependence. We generated human anti-CD19ζ CAR cytotoxic T lymphocytes and cytokine-induced killer cells and studied their sensitivity to the expression of adhesion molecules for the killing of primary(More)
Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV)-transformed B lymphoblastoid cell lines (BLCL) are currently used for numerous applications in cellular immunology. Where protocols destined for clinical application are concerned, the final choice of assay is made according to a risk/benefit ratio analysis. In this balance the use of xenogenic or allogenic serum has always been a(More)
Allogeneic bone marrow transplantation is still limited by the morbidity and mortality caused by graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), resulting from host recognition by donor T lymphocytes. It is possible to drastically reduce the T-cell content of the graft. However, transplanted T cells can also have a beneficial effect by graft enhancement and the(More)
BACKGROUND T-cells expressing the HSV1-TK suicide gene can be used for the control of graft-versus-host disease following allogeneic stem cell transplantation. To develop clinical trials based on such a strategy, we have generated under good manufacturing procedures a novel 'split genome' human packaging cell line (1704 cells). METHODS To minimize the(More)
