General description

Cancer immunotherapy is a rapidly expanding field that has produced significant advances in cancer treatment. Understanding the interactions of tumor cells with the immune system is crucial to the development of effective immunotherapeutic approaches. Fibrosarcoma is a rare yet aggressive soft-tissue sarcoma characterized by frequent tumor recurrences and a high degree of resistance to radio- and chemotherapy .
MCA-205 is a weakly immunogenic fibrosarcoma-derived cell line that has been used in many studies to induce tumor-reactive T lymphocytes, the key aspect of adoptive immunotherapy . MCA-205 cells are widely utilized as stimulators for inducing cytokine expression . The MCA-205 mouse fibrosarcoma cell line is an excellent model for studying the immune responses to tumor cells and for supporting the development of targeted cancer immunotherapies.

Source:
Non-GMO. MCA-205 was derived from 3-methylcholanthrene-induced fibrosarcoma in C57BL/6 mice. Tumors were maintained in vivo by serial subcutaneous transplantation in syngeneic mice and single-cell suspensions were prepared from solid tumors by enzymatic digestion . From these cells the MCA-205 cell line was established and maintained in vitro.

The ability to generate a large number of tumor-reactive T lymphocytes is the most critical requirement for adoptive immunotherapy. Our laboratory has previously demonstrated that cells from tumor-draining lymph nodes (LNs) are an excellent source of tumor-reactive T lymphocytes. After

Eosinophils are major effectors of Th2-related pathologies, frequently found infiltrating several human cancers. We recently showed that eosinophils play an essential role in anti-tumor responses mediated by immunotherapy with the 'alarmin' intereukin-33 (IL-33) in melanoma mouse models. Here, we analyzed

Nano-immunotherapy improves breast cancer outcomes but not all patients respond and none are cured. To improve efficacy, research focuses on drugs that reprogram cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) to improve therapeutic delivery and immunostimulation. These drugs, however, have a narrow therapeutic window
