GPC3-targeted CAR-T Cell for Treating GPC3 Positive Advanced HCC

2019-10-16 10:39:41 | BioPortfolio


Patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (a type of primary liver cancers) are enrolls in this study. The cancer has progressed after standard treatment, or the patient cannot receive regular treatment.

Investigator made a gene called chimeric antigen receptor derived from an antibody that recognizes Glypican 3, a protein detected in in a large proportion of hepatocellular carcinoma. The gene will introduce into T cell from patient's blood to make them recognize and kill cancer cells.

The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, tolerance and safety of chimeric antigen receptor-modified T (CAR-T) cell targeting Glypican 3 for advanced hepatocellular carcinoma.

Immunotherapy of Hepatocellular Carcinoma by Induction of Anti-alpha Fetoprotein Response

The secretion by tumor cells of alpha fetoprotein (AFP) was observed in 50 to 60% of hepatocellular carcinoma. The AFP can be used as a marker for tumor recurrence after treatment and may ...

Clinical immunology and immunotherapy for hepatocellular carcinoma: current progress and challenges.

At the time of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) diagnosis, patients are most often at an advanced stage; however, the current treatment regimens remain unsatisfactory. Thus, novel and more powerful ther...

Unique T cell populations define immune-inflamed Hepatocellular Carcinoma.

ATGL promotes the proliferation of hepatocellular carcinoma cells via the p-AKT signaling pathway.

Abnormal metabolism, including abnormal lipid metabolism, is a hallmark of cancer cells. Some studies have demonstrated that the lipogenic pathway might promote the development of hepatocellular carci...

miR-383 inhibits cell growth and promotes cell apoptosis in hepatocellular carcinoma by targeting IL-17 via STAT3 signaling pathway.

Emerging microRNAs (miRNAs) are validated to take part in pathological processes, including numerous carcinomas. Currently, we focused on the functional role of miR-383 and interleukin-17 (IL-17) in h...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A large family of receptor protein-tyrosine kinases that are structurally-related. The name of this family of proteins derives from original protein Eph (now called the EPHA1 RECEPTOR), which was named after the cell line it was first discovered in: Erythropoietin-Producing human Hepatocellular carcinoma cell line. Members of this family have been implicated in regulation of cell-cell interactions involved in nervous system patterning and development.

A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.

A heterogeneous group of sporadic or hereditary carcinoma derived from cells of the KIDNEYS. There are several subtypes including the clear cells, the papillary, the chromophobe, the collecting duct, the spindle cells (sarcomatoid), or mixed cell-type carcinoma.

A carcinoma arising from MERKEL CELLS located in the basal layer of the epidermis and occurring most commonly as a primary neuroendocrine carcinoma of the skin. Merkel cells are tactile cells of neuroectodermal origin and histologically show neurosecretory granules. The skin of the head and neck are a common site of Merkel cell carcinoma, occurring generally in elderly patients. (Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1245)

The founding member of the EPH FAMILY RECEPTORS. It was first cloned from an erythropoietin-producing human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line and is highly conserved among many mammalian species. Overproduction of the EphA1 receptor is associated with tumors and tumor cells of epithelial origin. It is also expressed at high levels in LIVER; LUNG; and KIDNEY; which is in contrast to many other members of the Eph receptor that are found primarily in tissues of the nervous system.
