Overcoming the toxicity hurdles of genetically targeted T cells

, : Overcoming the toxicity hurdles of genetically targeted T cells. Cancer Immunology, ImmunoTherapy 64(1): 123-130

The recent successes of clinical trials with T cells genetically modified with either clonal T cell receptors or chimeric antigen receptors have also highlighted their potential toxicities. The aim of this focused review was to describe the adverse events observed in these clinical trials and to link them to the complex biology of genetically targeted T cells. Finally, strategies to overcome these toxicities will be proposed and discussed, including the use of suicide genes and other innovative gene therapy strategies.

Effects of block of the rapid delayed rectifier K+ current (IK,r) by E-4031 on the electrical activity of small ball-like tissue preparations from different regions of the rabbit sinoatrial node were measured. The effects of partial block of IK,r...

Fluorescent Pseudomonas species are characterized by the production of pyoverdin-type siderophores for Fe3+ acquisition in iron-limited environments. Since it produces a structurally specific pyoverdin, Pseudomonas putida strain BTP1 could represe...
