  1. 1. Adoptive T Cell Therapy of Viral Infection and Cancer : Ex vivo Expansion of Cytomegalovirus- and Prostate Antigen-specific T Cells

    Author : Björn Carlsson; Magnus Essand; Thomas Tötterman; Malcolm Brenner; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunology; Immunotherapy; Adoptive T cell therapy; Dendritic cell; T cell; Tetramer; Cytomegalovirus; Transplantation; pp65; Prostate cancer; TARP; Prostate antigens; Immunologi; Immunology; Immunologi;

    Abstract : The main focus of my thesis has been to develop protocols for generating antigen-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) and T helper cells (TH) for adoptive transfer to treat cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease and prostate cancer. CMV viremia is a severe complication in immunocompromised stem cell transplanted patients. READ MORE

  2. 2. Adoptive T Cell Therapy for Treatment of Metastatic Melanoma

    Author : Arian Sadeghi; Thomas Tötterman; Karl-Johan Malmberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Malignant melanoma; Adoptive cell therapy; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Malignant melanoma is a common type of solid tumor that causes high cancer-related mortality in young adults of Northern Europe. The incidence of melanoma increases rapidly which renders us a special responsibility to investigate this disease in depth. READ MORE

  3. 3. Improvement of adoptive T-cell therapy for Cancer

    Author : Chuan Jin; Magnus Essand; Ola Winqvist; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CAR T-cell therapy; AEP expansion protocol; scaffold matrix attachment region; non-integrating lentivirus; H. pylori Neutrophil-activating protein; allogeneic DCs; Klinisk immunologi; Clinical Immunology;

    Abstract : Cancer immunotherapy has recently made remarkable clinical progress. Adoptive transfer of T-cells engineered with a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) against CD19 has been successful in treatment of B-cell leukemia. READ MORE

  4. 4. Novel immunotherapies for metastatic melanoma - from mouse models towards clinical trials

    Author : Elin Forsberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Metastatic melanoma; uveal melanoma; patient-derived xenograft; immune-humanized mouse model; immunotherapy; adoptive T cell therapy; tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes; chimeric antigen receptor T CAR-T cells;

    Abstract : Immunotherapies including checkpoint blockade and adoptive T cell transfer (ACT) show great promise for the treatment of melanoma, with long-term effects in some patients. However, around half of the patients with metastatic malignant melanoma will not be cured with available therapies today, and these patients require other treatment strategies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cancer Immunotherapy : Oncolytic viruses and CAR-T cells

    Author : Jing Ma; Di Yu; Magnus Essand; Mia Phillipson; Mohanraj Ramachandran; Karl-Johan Malmberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cancer immunotherapy; Oncolytic viruses; chimeric antigen receptor CAR -T cells; Helicobacter pylori Neutrophil Activating Protein;

    Abstract : Various forms of cancer immunotherapy have developed rapidly with improved survival and quality of life for cancer patients. Cancer immunotherapy aims to educate the patient’s immune system to eliminate cancer cells, including immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs), adoptive cell transfer (mostly T cells), oncolytic viruses (OVs) and cancer vaccines.
