The move follows criticism from health experts and the U.S. and other governments that it risked a resurgence of the deadly pandemic by downplaying the num...

4-1BB costimulation promotes CAR T cell survival through noncanonical NF-{kappa}B signaling
Clinical response to chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy is correlated with CAR T cell persistence, especially for CAR T cells that target CD19+ hematologic malignancies. 4-1BB–costimulated CAR (BB) T cells exhibit longer persistence after adoptive transfer than do CD28-costimulated CAR (28) T cells. 4-1BB signaling improves T cell persistence even in the context of 28 CAR activation, which indicates distinct prosurvival signals mediated by the 4-1BB cytoplasmic domain. To specifically study signal transduction by CARs, we developed a cell-free, ligand-based activation and ex vivo culture system for CD19-s...
