*  British Library EThOS: Dosing strategy for effective peptide immunotherapy of experimental autoimmune disease
Previous work has shown that repetitive intranasal (i.n.) administration of the myelin basic protein peptide MBP Acl-9[4Y] induces tolerance in the TCR transgenic Tg4 EAE model. Chronic antigen stimulation of C04+ T cells was found to induce an anergic IL-l0-secreting regulatory phenotype in Th-I cells, protecting animals from EAE. Alternative routes for peptide administration were explored in the Tg4 model, to increase our understanding of the factors influencing peptide immunotherapy. Epicutaneously (e. c.) administered MBP Acl- 9[4Y] was slowly trafficked to the lymph nodes and spleen where C04+ T cells were activated. However, repetitive e.c. MBP Acl-9[4Y] administration did not reliably induce characteristics of C04+ T cell tolerance, attributed to the difficulty of controlling the e.c. administered MBP Acl-9 [4 Y] dose. Use of the subcutaneous (s.c.) route circumvented this problem, and titrated MBP Acl-9[4Y] doses were administered s.c. to Tg4 mice. Tolerance induced was proportional ...

*  Integrin-targeted cancer immunotherapy elicits protective adaptive immune responses | JEM
Recent clinical outcomes and subsequent approvals of anti-CTLA-4 and anti-PD-1 checkpoint blockade antibodies, which mitigate inhibitory signaling that decreases antitumor T cell responses, have ignited extraordinarily broad efforts to develop the potential of cancer immunotherapy (Pardoll, 2012; Topalian et al., 2015). Unlike strategies that typically elicit antitumor responses of limited duration and nearly inevitable treatment resistance, immunotherapeutics can achieve durable and long-lasting antitumor responses in a minority of patients with advanced disease (Sharma and Allison, 2015). To build upon this success, combination immunotherapies are a next logical step (Gajewski et al., 2013; Spranger and Gajewski, 2013).. One such approach combines a tumor-specific antibody to drive antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) through neutrophil- and eosinophil-mediated attack and an extended serum half-life IL-2 fusion to activate CD8+ T cells and NK cells. However, this strategy ...

*  Advances in Combination Tumor Immunotherapy | Frontiers Research Topic
Recent clinical studies have highlighted the therapeutic efficacy of cancer immunotherapy, such as T cell immune checkpoint blockade with anti-CTLA-4 or anti-PD-1 mAb. In metastatic melanoma, these agents have shown an unprecedented capacity to induce durable object responses lasting for many years; however, the percentage of patients experiencing such profound clinical benefit remains small. Having established this unique capacity of immunotherapy to mediate such durable melanoma tumor rejections, the focus of the field has shifted toward increasing the percentage of cancer patients who benefit from this therapy. The combination of CTLA-4 and PD-1 antibodies synergized in rejecting tumors in a mouse melanoma model, and produced a remarkable 53% objective response rate in a Phase I trial of metastatic melanoma patients. This trial demonstrated the feasibility and potential therapeutic efficacy of combination immunotherapy for the treatment of patients with ...

*  Step 11: Immunotherapy | Nicklaus Children's Hospital
Immunotherapy is like a vaccination against your allergies. Vaccine shots are to prevent infections; immunotherapy shots are to prevent allergies. However, the two work in opposite ways. Vaccinations prime the immune system to help the body react swiftly if the disease is encountered again, whereas immunotherapy dulls the reaction to allergens.. In the long term, allergy shots can minimize the need for antihistamines or other allergy medications. Immunotherapy builds up your tolerance to specific allergens, so your body won't overreact to them.. Immunotherapy shots are used for most airborne allergens, including tree, grass, and weed pollens, mold spores, dust mites, and animal allergens. Immunotherapy shots can also be used to prevent severe sting reactions from honeybees, yellow jackets, hornets, wasps, or fire ants. ...

THURSDAY, April 20, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- An experimental immune-system therapy appears safe for people with progressive forms of multiple sclerosis. And it may ease symptoms in some, a preliminary study suggests.. The findings are based on just six patients, and the Australian researchers stressed that a lot of work still lies ahead.. But they were encouraged that this new approach to MS had no major side effects. In addition, three of the six patients showed symptom improvements, including reduced fatigue and better mobility.. It's not clear, however, what to make of those improvements, said Bruce Bebo, executive vice president of research for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.. The study was a "phase 1" trial, meaning it was designed only to test the therapy's safety.. "Based on this very preliminary study, the therapy appears safe," said Bebo, who was not involved in the research.. "But I'd be even more cautious in drawing any conclusions about the clinical improvements," he ...

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is a very aggressive tumor that is characterized by abundant tumor stroma and a potent immunosuppressive microenvironment. Further studies to clarify why T cells infiltrate the tumor but are not able to perform effector functions as well as to find new effective therapies to overcome immunosuppression are urgently needed. The aims of the present study were (1) to characterize different murine PDAC tumor models in regard to their utility for studying novel immunotherapeutic approaches, (2) to assess the therapeutic efficacy of a novel bifunctional ppp-siRNA that combines silencing of the immunosuppressive molecule galectin-1 and RIG-I-mediated immune activation in murine PDAC and (3) to characterize the immunosuppressive mechanisms leading to T cell inhibition in the tumor microenvironment.

*  Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX2) gene silencing with siRNA could enhance DNA vaccination to inhibit established ErbB-2 carcinomas |...
Background: Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX2) is the key enzyme in the synthesis of prostaglandin E2 from its precursor, arachidonic acid. The level of COX2 is normally very low in cells but increased amounts of COX2 are commonly detected in both premalignant and malignant tissues. In order to investigate COX2 as a potential target for the prevention and treatment of cancer, we propose a novel immunotherapeutic approach for the prevention of ErbB-2 positive breast carcinomas, based on DNA vaccination against a specific antigen (ErbB-2) in combination with the silencing of COX2. Material and methods: The short hairpin RNA interference cassette targeting COX2 mRNA, containing the mouse RNA promoter U6, was amplified and cloned into the Eco72I site of pVAX-ratECTM (RRT), a vector carrying the extracellular and transmembrane domains of rat ErbB-2, and into pVAXI, to obtain respectively RRT-COX2 and pVAXCOX2. The gene silencing efficacy of both plasmids was checked by transfecting COX2 over-expressing A17 ...

Prof. Dr. Ulrike Protzer. With the discovery and development of vaccines, modern medicine succeeded in combating infectious pathogens. "The disadvantage, however, is that vaccinations must be prophylactic, that is they must take place before the first contact with the pathogen," said Professor Percy Knolle, who was previously director of the Institute of Molecular Medicine of the University of Bonn and is now director of the Institute of Molecular Immunology of TU München (TUM). Until now, post-infection protection by means of vaccination has not been possible for common chronic infections with hepatitis viruses. These infections can progress to chronic liver inflammation and cause organ damage, eventually leading to a dangerous liver cirrhosis or liver cancer. Scientists of the University of Bonn, together with their colleagues at TUM and Helmholtz Zentrum München as well as other national and international institutes, have now made a promising discovery in animal models.
