A Virus, a Gene and a Pill Used to Harness the Immune System to Fight Brain Tumor in Children

GoldmanStewart_RGB.jpg

The first patient in a new Phase 1 gene therapy trial for pediatric brain tumors underwent a leading-edge procedure at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. During surgery to remove the brain tumor, the patient was injected with an adenovirus, a common cold virus, at the tumor site. The virus was bioengineered not to cause illness but rather deliver a gene that produces human interleukin 12 (hIL-12), a powerful protein to jumpstart the immune system to kill remaining tumor cells. For the next 14 days, the patient is given a pill – veledimex – to activate the gene and control the immune response, so that the inflammation fights the tumor without overwhelming the rest of the body.

Penn Study Links Mutations in Notch Gene to Role in B Cell Cancers

PearCellReportsimageOct17.jpg

Researchers found that in B cell tumors, mutated overactive versions of the Notch protein directly drive the expression of the Myc gene and many other genes that participate in B cell signaling pathways. Myc is a critical gene in governing cell proliferation and survival.
