Lysis of malignant B cells from patients with B-chronic lymphocytic leukemia by autologous T cells activated with CD3 x CD19 bispecific antibodies in combination with bivalent CD28 antibodies.

Bispecific antibodies (bi-MABs) can be used to target T cells to autologous tumor cells. It has been shown that the activation of resting human T cells requires two independent signals, namely the cross-linking of the T-cell receptor (TCR)-CD3 complex together with the CD28 homodimer. In the present study, we demonstrate the activation of T cells from… CONTINUE READING
