BACKGROUND Ipilimumab improves overall survival in a subset of patients with metastatic melanoma. Peripheral blood T cell receptor (TCR) repertoire diversity has been associated with favorable outcomes in patients with cancer, but its relevance as a biomarker for ipilimumab outcomes remains unknown. FINDINGS In this pilot study, we analyzed the(More)
Lymphopenia (< 1Giga/L) detected before initiation of chemotherapy is a predictive factor for death in metastatic solid tumors. Combinatorial T cell repertoire (TCR) diversity was investigated and tested either alone or in combination with lymphopenia as a prognostic factor at diagnosis for overall survival (OS) in metastatic breast cancer (MBC) patients.(More)
AIMS Regulatory T cells (Treg) exert anti-inflammatory and atheroprotective effects in experimental atherosclerosis. Treg can be induced against specific antigens using immunization strategies associated with clonal restriction. No data exist on Treg in combination with clonal restriction of T cells in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). METHODS(More)
