Expansion of EBV latent membrane protein 2a specific cytotoxic T cells for the adoptive immunotherapy of EBV latency type 2 malignancies: influence of recombinant IL12 and IL15.

Abstract

BACKGROUND EBV-associated malignancies with a Type II latency gene expression pattern, such as EBV-positive HD, or nasopharyngeal carcinoma, frequently express the EBV latency Ag LMP2a. Hence, they provide a potential target for adoptive immunotherapy using in vitro-generated LMP2a-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL). In this study, LMP2a-specific CTL… (More)
