The NCI cites Renier J. Brentjens, M.D., Ph.D. , of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in New York observing that results from the trials performed thus far are proof of principle that we can successfully alter patients T cells so that they attack their cancer cells. Dr. Brentjens notes that in light of encouraging results in mouse studies, he and research colleagues at his Memorial Sloan Kettering lab are now testing this approach at in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia and acute lymphoblastic leukemia who are no longer responsive to chemotherapy. "These highly innovative studies will hopefully result in a novel and successful treatment option for patients with certain forms of hematologic cancers," he says.

In an OncLive video, Dr. Brentjens explains how immune cells (T cells) are naturally programmed to be able to distinguish between self and nonself cells, which express foreign proteins, and how once detected, T cells attack and kill foreign cells. He notes that that an idea central to immunotherapy is to "reeducate" T cells to make them recognize cancer cells as being foreign.

But the results from the trials performed thus far are proof of principle that we can successfully alter patients T cells so that they attack their cancer cells, said one of the trial's leaders, Renier J. Brentjens, M.D., Ph.D., of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in New York.

Adoptive cell transfer is like giving patients a living drug, continued Dr. Brentjens.
Dr. Brentjens agreed that both drugs could become a useful way to help manage cytokine-release syndrome because, unlike steroids, they dont appear to affect the infused CAR T cells activity or proliferation.
Research groups like Dr. Brentjens are also working to make a superior CAR T cell, including developing a better receptor and identifying better targets.
