RORγt(+) T(H)17 cells are a proinflammatory CD4(+) T-cell population associated with autoimmune tissue injury. In mice, priming of T(H)17 requires TGF-β, which alone directs the priming of FOXP3(+) regulatory T cells (Treg), in association with inflammatory cytokines. Priming of human T(H)17 cells from conventional naive CD4(+) T cells under similar(More)
Recent studies have suggested a close relationship between CD4(+)FOXP3(+) regulatory T cells (Tregs) and proinflammatory IL-17-producing T helper cells (T(H)17) expressing the lineage-specific transcription factor RORgamma t. We report here the unexpected finding that human memory Tregs secrete IL-17 ex vivo and constitutively express RORgamma t.(More)
Here we describe the development of a two-step chromatography process based on the use of ion-exchange resins for the purification of recombinant adeno-associated virus (rAAV) serotypes-2 and-5. In vitro and in vivo results demonstrate that this method, which does not require any prepurification step of the cell lysate, can be applied to obtain highly pure(More)
Numerous in vivo studies have demonstrated that recombinant AAV-2 vectors (rAAV-2) can efficiently transduce many tissues and lead to stable gene expression 12. These encouraging results have led to a rapid development of clinical trials involving the use of rAAV-2 vectors 3. However, the obtainment of large-scale rAAV-2 vector stocks for clinical assay is(More)
The role of T(H)17 cells in cancer is being investigated, but the existence of tumor antigen-specific T(H)17 cells has yet to be ascertained. Here, we report the first description of a spontaneous T(H)17 (IL-17(+)) response to the important tumor antigen MAGE-A3, which occurred concurrently with a T(H)1 (IFN-γ(+)) response in a lung cancer patient.(More)
The highly immunogenic human tumor antigen NY-ESO-1 (ESO) is a target of choice for anti-cancer immune therapy. In this study, we assessed spontaneous antibody (Ab) responses to ESO in a large cohort of patients with primary breast cancer (BC) and addressed the correlation between the presence of anti-ESO Ab, the expression of ESO in the tumors and their(More)
PURPOSE NY-ESO-1 (ESO), a tumor-specific antigen of the cancer/testis group, is presently viewed as an important model antigen for the development of generic anticancer vaccines. The ESO(119-143) region is immunodominant following immunization with a recombinant ESO vaccine. In this study, we generated DRB1*0101/ESO(119-143) tetramers and used them to(More)
Spontaneous CD4(+) T-cell responses to the tumor-specific antigen NY-ESO-1 (ESO) are frequently found in patients with epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). If these responses are of effector or/and Treg type, however, has remained unclear. Here, we have used functional approaches together with recently developed MHC class II/ESO tetramers to assess the(More)
Antitumor type I T-cell responses involving IFN-γ production are critical to control cancer, but the efficacy of this response is limited by a variety of immunosuppressive mechanisms that promote tumoral immune escape. One critical mechanism involves the accumulation of FOXP3(+) T regulatory cells (Treg), a class of suppressive T cells that prevent(More)
Download pose: NY-ESO-1 (ESO), a tumor-specific antigen of the cancer/testis group, is presently viewed as portant model antigen for the development of generic anticancer vaccines. The ESO119-143 region is nodominant following immunization with a recombinant ESO vaccine. In this study, we generated *0101/ESO119-143 tetramers and used them to assess CD4(More)
