anti-hCD70-CAR retroviral vector-transduced autologous PBLs
A preparation of autologous human peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) transduced with a retroviral vector encoding for a T-cell chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) gene specific for the human cluster of differentiation 70 (CD70), with potential immunostimulatory and antineoplastic activities. Autologous PBLs from a patient with CD70-positive cancer are transduced with a retroviral vector that encodes the CAR gene specific for CD70. After expansion in culture and reintroduction into the patient, anti-hCD70-CAR retroviral vector-transduced autologous PBLs bind to the CD70 antigen on tumor cell surfaces; subsequently, CD70-expressing tumor cells are lysed. CD70, the ligand for the costimulatory receptor CD27, is overexpressed on the surfaces of various cancer cell types. Check for active clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
