Comprehensive solutions to support CAR T-cell therapy research from T-cell engineering to sequencing
Adoptive cell transfer is a rapidly emerging area of immuno-oncology research. This approach involves collecting, manipulating, activating, and transferring a subject’s immune cells to treat cancer. A widely studied approach to cell therapy is chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy, also known as CAR T-cell therapy.
Many immuno-oncology therapeutics are mass-produced antibody or fusion proteins. CAR T-cell therapy breaks that mold by utilizing a genetically modified patient T cell that attacks and kills the cancer cells. T cells do not normally identify cancer cells as foreign bodies, which would mark them for destruction. For immunotherapy to work, T cells are genetically manipulated to enable them to identify the cancer cells as an enemy and kill them as they would other foreign bodies. The T cells are genetically modified with CARs containing antibody-based recognition domains directed against cell-surface antigens linked to intracellular signaling sequences to overcome the cancer cell’s tolerance. Once created, these modified T cells are reintroduced into the subject along with chemotherapy.
