Understanding the Challenges of Cancer Survivors With Pre-existing Disabilities

We know so little about the cancer experience of people who had a functional limitation, such as fibromyalgia, sensory impairment, polio, and depression, prior to their cancer diagnosis and treatment. If you have completed active treatment for your cancer, I invite you to participate in a study to help us understand how cancer survivors who had a functional limitation before being diagnosed with cancer take care of their health. Your information will help health care providers work more effectively with survivors such as yourself. You can earn $ 25 by completing a questionnaire packet. If you are over the age of 21 and have completed active treatment, please call us 1-800-687-8010/512-232-3492 or email us atsookjunga@mail.utexas.edu for more information.  Primary Investigator:Heather Becker, Ph.D., The University of Texas at Austin.heatherbecker@mail.utexas.edu This research is funded by National Cancer Institute. http://www.utexas.edu/nursing/html/research/news/09/cancer.html  10/11/2009

AM Abstract Adoptive transfer of T cells transgenic for tumor-reactive T-cell receptors (TCR) is an attractive immunotherapeutic approach. However, clinical translation is so far limited due to challenges in the identification of suitable target antigens as well as TCRs that are concurrent safe and efficient. Definition of key characteristics relevant for effective and specific tumor rejection is essential to improve current TCR-based adoptive T-cell immunotherapies. We here characterized in-depth two TCRs derived from the human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-mismatched allogeneic repertoire targeting two different myel...
