Development of Acute Myeloid Leukemia Cell Membrane Coated Nanoparticles (AMCNPs) for Cancer Vaccination Immunotherapy

Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) is the most common acute leukemia in adults and has a five-year survival rate under 50%. Most patients will relapse even after complete remission is achieved through standard chemotherapy. Thus, one barrier in current AML therapy is how to target the minimal residual disease during remission. Recent developments in understanding cancer cell antigen presentation and immunosuppression have revealed the promise of cancer immunotherapy in activating immune responses to target residual disease. Each leukemia patient has a unique spectrum of cell surface antigens, which are mostly uncharacterized. If these antigens can be efficiently presented to the patient's immune system, immune responses to fight the leukemia can be significantly enhanced. We therefore sought to develop and characterize an AML cell membrane-coated nanoparticle (AMCNP) platform with nanoparticles (NPs) carrying the same surface antigens as the source leukemic cells for use as an anti-cancer vaccine.To demonstrate that our AMCNP vaccines enhance leukemia-specific antigen dendritic cell (DC) presentation and T-cell responses, we modified the C1498 murine AML cell line to express membrane-bound chicken ovalbumin (C1498-mOVA) as a model antigen. We confirmed that the C1498-mOVA line presents the OVA MHC class-I "SIINFEKL" antigen through flow-cytometry and LacZ B3Z T-cell activation assays. The C1498-mOVA line remained leukemogenic when injected into C57BL/6 mice, with survival...

CONCLUSIONS: CD200 and CD56 positive expression by myeloblasts at diagnosis denote poor prognostic indicator and correlated with poor cytogenetic findings. CD200 could be used as therapeutic target in AML.. PMID: 32212802 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: ElNahass YH, Badawy RH, ElRefaey FA, Nooh HA, Ibrahiem D, Nader HA, Mahmoud HK, ElMetnawy WH Abstract OBJECTIVE: IDH mutations diversely affect the prognosis of cyogenetically normal acute myeloid leukemia (CN-AML) adult patients. The aim of this study is to assess the frequency of IDH mutations and to evaluate its role in AML prognosis. METHODS: We have analyzed IDH1 and 2 mutations using High Resolution Melting curve analysis (HRM) in 70 denovo AML patients. RESULTS: The median age of AML patients is 40 years (16-75). Incidence of IDH mutations is 10/70 (14.3%); 2 (2.9%) IDH1 mutant and 8 (11.4%)...

CONCLUSION: This study showed the frequency and pattern of chromosomal abnormalities of MDS patients in upper northern Thailand were different from other populations. MDS with isolated chromosome 5 abnormalities had clinical characteristics corresponding with patients in good prognosis risk group. However, MDS patients with chromosome 7 and complex abnormalities showed higher percentage blast of BM which high risk to progression to acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Combined CC and FISH techniques detect chromosomal abnormalities with greater frequency than when either technique is used alone.. PMID: 32212788 [PubMed - in process]

ojo Fujii Recent cancer treatment modalities have been intensively focused on immunotherapy. The success of chimeric antigen receptor T cell therapy for treatment of refractory B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia has pushed forward research on hematological malignancies. Among the effector types of innate lymphocytes, natural killer (NK) cells show great importance in immune surveillance against infectious and tumor diseases. Particularly, the role of NK cells has been argued in either elimination of target tumor cells or escape of tumor cells from immune surveillance. Therefore, an NK cell activation approach has b...

TheASXL1 mutation frequency is high in AML ‐MRC patients being its presence associated with specific characteristics, including morphological signs of dysplasia. This association raises the possible role ofASXL1 as a surrogate marker in AML ‐MRC, which could facilitate the diagnosis of patients within this group when the karyotype is normal, and especially when the assessment of multilineage dysplasia morphologically is difficult. This mutation could be used as a worst outcome marker in de novo AML‐MRC with intermediate‐risk kar yotype. AbstractAcute myeloid leukemia with myelodysplasia ‐related changes (AML...

In this study, we found that NiPT triggered autophagy both in vitro and in vivo. Mechanistically, NiPT targets two DUBs, USP14, and UCHL5, and increased the total cellular level of polyubiquitination. Deletion of the Ubiquitin Associated (UBA) domain of P62 that is required for polyubiquitin binding prevented NiPT-induced autophagy. NiPT-induced autophagy is through either concomitant activation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) and inhibition of mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling, or eliciting endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-stress by activating activating transcription factor 4 (ATF4) and C/EBP-homologous p...

Abstract TET family members (TETs) encode proteins that represent crucial factors in the active DNA demethylation pathway. Evidence has proved that TET2 mutation is associated with leukemogenesis, drug response, and prognosis in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). However, few studies revealed the TETs expression and its clinical significance in AML. We conducted a detailed expression and prognosis analysis of TETs expression in human AML cell lines and patients by using public databases. We observed that TETs expression especially TET2 and TET3 was closely associated with AML among various human cancers. TET1 expressio...
