Abstract

Background: Adoptive cell transfer cancer immunotherapy holds promise for treating disseminated disease, yet generating sufficient numbers of lymphocytes with anti-cancer activity against diverse specificities remains a major challenge. We recently developed a novel procedure (ALECSAT) for selecting, expanding and maturating polyclonal lymphocytes from peripheral blood with the capacity to target malignant cells. Methods: Immunodeficient mice were challenged with triple-negative breast cancer cell lines or patient-derived xenografts (PDX) and treated with allogeneic or autologous ALECSAT cells with and without anti-PDL1 therapy to assess the capacity of ALECSAT cells to inhibit primary tumor growth and metastasis. Results: ALECSAT mono therapy inhibited metastasis, but did not inhibit primary tumor growth or prolong survival of tumor-bearing mice. In contrast, combined ALECSAT and anti-PDL1 therapy significantly inhibited primary tumor growth, nearly completely blocked metastasis, and prolonged survival of tumor-bearing mice. Conclusions: Combined ALECSAT and anti-PDL1 therapy results in favorable anti-cancer responses in both cell line-derived xenograft and autologous PDX models of advanced triple-negative breast cancer.
