MOTIVATION There is a need for effective automated methods for profiling dynamic cell-cell interactions with single-cell resolution from high-throughput time-lapse imaging data, especially, the interactions between immune effector cells and tumor cells in adoptive immunotherapy. RESULTS Fluorescently labeled human T cells, natural killer cells (NK), and(More)

T cells genetically modified to enforce expression of a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) have shown considerable promise in clinical trials even in tumors refractory to all other treatment methods. In particular, the use of CAR T cells rendered specific for CD19 demonstrated significant anti-tumor effects in patients with CD19 + chronic lymphocytic leukemia(More)
T cells genetically modified to express a CD19-specific chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) for the investigational treatment of B cell malignancies comprise a heterogeneous population, and their ability to persist and participate in serial killing of tumor cells is a predictor of therapeutic success. We developed Timelapse Imaging Microscopy In Nanowell Grids(More)
Adoptive cell therapy (ACT) utilizing chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells rendered specific for CD19 have demonstrated significant anti-tumor effects in patients with CD19+ chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). In spite of the clinical promise of ACT in achieving complete responses, their efficacy remains unpredictable and new approaches are needed to(More)
Humanized monoclonal antibodies (mAb) targeting tumor antigens have paved the way to complementary strategies in the treatment of cancer by harnessing the immune system towards a more specific response against tumors. Such mAb can mobilize natural killer (NK) cells function by mediating antibody-dependent cell cytotoxi-city (ADCC). ADCC can be enhanced(More)
