Pancreatic tumors are known to be resistant to immunotherapy due to the extensive immune suppressive tumor microenvironment (TME). We hypothesized that CXCL12 and PD-L1 are two key molecules controlling the immunosuppressive TME. Fusion proteins, called traps, designed to bind with these two molecules with high affinity (Kd = 4.1 and 0.22 nM, respectively)(More)
The ability to generate potent immunotherapies locally and transiently for the treatment of cancers is a promising strategy to improve efficacy and decrease off-target toxicities. Here, we explored an alternative approach for the delivery of immunotherapeutic agents, in which we deliver the pDNA of an engineered PD-L1 trap and/or CXCL12 trap to the nucleus(More)
