Anti-Horse Podoplanin Monoclonal Antibody PMab-219 is Useful for Detecting Lymphatic Endothelial Cells by Immunohistochemical Analysis. Monoclon Antib Immunodiagn Immunother. 2018 Dec;37(6):272-274 Authors: Kato Y, Yamada S, Itai S, Kobayashi A, Konnai S, Kaneko MK Abstract Podoplanin (PDPN) is expressed in lymphatic endothelial cells, where it induces platelet aggregation through C-type lectin-like receptor-2 (CLEC-2). This protein has been characterized for a number of animal species using specific anti-PDPN monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). We recently established the mAb against horse PDPN (horPDPN) named PMab-219. Therefore, in this study, we investigated whether PMab-219 can detect lymphatic endothelial cells in horse tissues. Immunohistochemical analysis demonstrated that PMab-219 strongly stained lymphatic endothelial cells in horse colon tissues, indicating that it will be useful for investigating the function of horPDPN in these cells.

AlajezAbstractSubstantial evolution in cancer therapy has been witnessed lately, steering mainly towards immunotherapeutic approaches, replacing or in combination with classical therapies. Whereas the use of various immunotherapy approaches, such as adoptive T cell therapy, genetically-modified T cells, or immune checkpoint inhibitors, has been a triumph for cancer immunotherapy, the great challenge is the ability of the immune system to sustain long lasting anti-...
Publication date: Available online 14 November 2019Source: Nano TodayAuthor(s): Xiaochen Liu, Dangge Wang, Pengcheng Zhang, Yaping LiAbstractCheckpoint blockade immunotherapy revolutionizes the field of cancer therapy, among which anti-programmed cell death (anti-PD) therapy is the most successful one in clinic. Despite the tremendous advancement, anti-PD therapy is still limited by barriers such as low response rate and immune related adverse effects (AEs), which are mainly resulted from poor intratumoral infiltration of cytotoxic T lymphocytes and off-tumor distribution of the anti-PD drugs. To address these issues, nano...
(UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center) UNC Lineberger researchers discovered a biological signature that could help identify which triple negative breast cancers might respond to immunotherapy and other treatments.
(University of California - San Francisco) In a breakthrough with important implications for the future of immunotherapy for breast cancer, UC San Francisco scientists have found that blocking the activity of a single enzyme can prevent a common type of breast cancer from spreading to distant organs.
Antitumor immunity has emerged as a favorable byproduct of radiation therapy (RT), whereby tumor-associated antigens released from irradiated cells unleash innate and adaptive attacks on tumors located both within and outside the radiation field. RT-induced immune responses further provide actionable targets for overcoming tumor resistance to RT (R-RT); immunotherapy (IT) with checkpoint inhibitors or Toll-like receptor (TLR) agonists can markedly improve, if not synergize with, RT in preclinical models, and several of these drugs are currently investigated as radiosensitizers in patients. In an unbiased chemical-genetic s...
