Because tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) preferentially induces apoptosis in tumor cells and plays a critical role in tumor surveillance, its receptor is an attractive target for antibody-mediated tumor therapy. Here we report that a monoclonal antibody (mAb) against the mouse TRAIL receptor, DR5, exhibited potent antitumor(More)
Recent reports have suggested that the death ligand tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) may partially limit the formation of hepatic metastases of a variety of mouse tumors, and the major source of TRAIL in the liver was shown to be local natural killer cells. We isolated a clone (R331) of the murine renal cancer cell line Renca(More)
The major limiting factor in the successful application of adjuvant therapy for metastatic disease is the lack of adjuvant specificity that leads to severe side effects. Reasoning that T cells of the immune system are highly specific, we generated tumor-specific T cells by genetic modification of mouse primary T cells with a chimeric receptor reactive with(More)
NKG2D is an activation receptor on NK cells and has been demonstrated as a primary cytotoxicity receptor for mouse NK cells. Primary rejection of class I-deficient RMA-S lymphoma cells expressing the NKG2D ligand, retinoic acid early inducible-1beta, was critically dependent upon NK cell perforin and occurred independently of T cells. NKG2D-triggered NK(More)
