Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) modified T cells (CAR-T) as a new field of adoptive immune cell therapy has become a hot spot in recent research. In 1989, Israeli scholar Gross et al. First proposed the concept of CAR-T cells, which blend the antibody-variable region of the tumor antigen with the constant region of the T cell receptor (TCR) to construct a chimeric antigen Receptor (CAR). It was found that CAR T cells could recognize specific tumor antigens without MHC restriction while activating killer T cells (CTL) and playing the role of killing tumor cells. As the CAR-T cells technology develops, more hope has been brought to these incurable diseases, such as autoimmune disease, blastoma, carcinoma, leukemia, and lymphoma.

CarT for Carcinoma Therapy

Carcinoma is a type of cancer that originates in epithelial cells. In particular, a carcinoma refers to cancer that begins in a tissue that lines the inner or outer surfaces of the body, and that progress develop from cells originating in the endodermal or ectodermal Germ layer during embryogenesis.

Like other immunotherapies, the basic principle is to clear cancer cells by taking advantage of immune cells itself. But the difference is that this is a cytotherapy not a drug. Car T for Carcinoma Therapy can be divided into 5 steps. The cell is separated from the body of cancer patients. Then a cell that can confirm tumors is added into the T cell by the genetic engineering technology and at the same time, T cell is activated to kill chimeras of tumor cells, turning into CAR-T Cells to target and kill cancer cells at any time. The third stage belongs to in vitro culture. A great number of CAR-T cells are amplified. Normal speaking, a patient needs billions of CAR-T cells. The larger patients body, more Cells will be needed. Next, these amplified CAR T cells are transfused back into the patient body. Eventually, patients will be monitored closely to control their acute reactions.

Car t for Leukemia therapy

Leukemia is a group of cancers that usually start in the bone marrow and result in high numbers of abnormal white blood cells which are not fully developed and are called blasts or leukemia cells. Symptoms of Leukemia may include bleeding and bruising problems, feeling tired, fever, and an increased risk of infections.

In general, CAR is composed of the extracellular antigen recognition domain of the antibody and the intracellular signal transduction mechanism of the T cell receptor (TCR). Since T cells require co-stimulus to be fully activated, the second generation of CAR is designed with additional intracellular domains (usually from CD-28 or 4-1BB) and the second signal is delivered at the time of receptor binding. For acute lymphoblastic leukemia, early B cells (blasts) out of control are mainly in the periphery. These cells typically exhibit high levels of CD19, which appear in almost all B cell lineages but do not appear elsewhere. As for other blood cancers, even if they express CD19 antigens, such as chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), they are often tolerated by CAR-T therapy because these cell types provide a more challenging environment for T cell binding. At the same time, they may exist in other isolated parts of the body.

Car t for Lymphoma therapy

Lymphoma is a group of blood cell tumors that origin in lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell). Signs and symptoms may include enlarged lymph nodes, drenching sweats, fever, itching, unintended weight loss, and constantly feeling tired.

Car T for Lymphoma therapy usually are targeted to CD19 antigen.

Car T for Lymphoma therapy usually are targeted to CD19 antigen. In fact, the first CAR-T cell clinical trial was conducted in patients with NHL. Many clinical trials use CAR-T cells to treat low-risk (FL) and intermediate-risk (DLBCL). The results of these trials are largely encouraging but are accompanied by adverse reactions in patients with similar leukemia.

  5. Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thanks

  6. I haven’t checked in here for a while because I thought it was getting boring, but the last few posts are great quality so I guess I will add you back to my daily bloglist. You deserve it my friend :)

  7. What’s Happening i’m new to this, I stumbled upon this I’ve found It positively helpful and it has helped me out loads. I hope to contribute & aid other users like its helped me. Great job.

  8. I believe that avoiding highly processed foods may be the first step to help lose weight. They might taste good, but prepared foods have very little nutritional value, making you take in more in order to have enough power to get throughout the day. For anyone who is constantly taking in these foods, transitioning to grain and other complex carbohydrates will let you have more vitality while ingesting less. Thanks alot : ) for your blog post.

  9. One thing I’d prefer to comment on is that fat reduction plan fast can be performed by the right diet and exercise. An individual’s size not just affects the look, but also the quality of life. Self-esteem, depression, health risks, in addition to physical abilities are influenced in weight gain. It is possible to do everything right and still gain. If this happens, a medical problem may be the primary cause. While a lot food and not enough workout are usually at fault, common health concerns and widely used prescriptions can greatly increase size. Kudos for your post in this article.

  10. Yet another thing is that when looking for a good online electronics shop, look for online shops that are regularly updated, always keeping up-to-date with the newest products, the most beneficial deals, along with helpful information on products. This will ensure that you are doing business with a shop that stays ahead of the competition and provide you what you should need to make intelligent, well-informed electronics acquisitions. Thanks for the critical tips I have learned through the blog.
