Contributors : Duhen Thomas ; Montler Ryan ; Weinberg AndrewSeries Type : Expression profiling by arrayOrganism : Homo sapiensIdentifying tumor antigen-specific T cells from cancer patients has been a goal of tumor immunologists for several decades. Co-expression of CD103 and CD39 on CD8 TIL highly enriches for tumor-reactive T cells. CD39+CD103+ CD8 TIL have a distinct TCR repertoire compared to other CD8 TIL subsets and are clonally expanded within the tumor.They are highly enriched for tumor antigen recognition and efficiently killed autologous tumor cells. Patients with head and neck cancer whose CD8 TIL contained a hi...

Authors: Jung HK, Talley NJ Abstract Functional dyspepsia (FD) is a common disorder characterized by chronic epigastric pain or burning, or bothersome postprandial fullness or early satiation, without a definitive organic cause. The pathogenesis of FD is likely heterogeneous. Classically, motor disorders, visceral hypersensitivity, and brain-gut interactions have been implicated in the pathophysiology of FD, but recently an important role for chronic low-grade inflammation and post-infectious gastroenteritis in FD has been reported and confirmed. Duodenal low-grade inflammation is frequently observed in FD in those...

Authors: Smith KM, Desai J Abstract INTRODUCTION: Despite a variety of therapies for advanced metastatic colorectal cancer being available, the outcomes in this malignancy remain sub-optimal. Immunotherapy has been slow to impact the management of this patient group. Checkpoint inhibitors, such as nivolumab, have had disappointing results when used broadly. However, for the subset of patients with microsatellite unstable colorectal cancer the use of checkpoint inhibitors such as nivolumab appears to be transformative, and will provide a new therapeutic option for patient with advanced disease. Areas covered: Nivolu...
