About the Book

Recently our lab has demonstrated that infusion of allogeneic alphabetaTCR +CD3+CD4-CD8-NK1.1 - double negative (DN) T cell clones can eliminate tumor cells without causing graft versus host disease. Here we investigated whether primary DN T cells can prevent tumor progression and the mechanisms involved. We demonstrated that injection of single MHC-mismatched primary DN T cells can prevent tumor (A20) progression. Although DN T cells produced high amounts of IFNgamma, their cytotoxicity to A20 tumor is IFNgamma independent and contact dependent in vitro. Blocking the interactions between the T cell receptors (TCR) on DN T cells and alloantigen on tumors impaired their cytotoxicity, whereas transducing a single MHC class I alloantigen on syngeneic tumor cells is sufficient for DN T cells to recognize and kill tumor cells. These findings enhance our understanding of the anti-tumor activity of DN T cells, and suggesting DN T cells as a potential candidate for cancer immunotherapy.
