Immunocore's ImmTACs, a new class of drug with ultra-high affinity for intracellular cancer targets, are synthetic, soluble T cell receptors
(TCRs) that recognise diseased cells containing disease specific targets.
So the use of multiple, engineered T cell receptors
may be one way to adjust for the higher potential for HIV mutation in humans.
These T Cell Receptor
mimics (TCRm) offer valuable insight into how the immune system interacts with a diseased cell, yielding better immunology research, better clinical diagnostics, and better therapies such as monoclonal antibodies and vaccines.
Unlike classical treatments for MRSA, ImmuVen's T cell receptor
proteins work by targeting the toxins rather than destroying the foreign organism.
Based on technology developed by the visionary George Church at Harvard Medical School, our technology allows for the identification of complete, natively paired B cell antibodies and T cell receptors
across millions of single cells simultaneously at unprecedented resolution.
B Cell Receptor
signaling contributes to the proliferation and survival of many B cell malignancies.
T Cell Receptors
naturally recognise diseased cells and Immunocore's competitive advantage is its ability to engineer high affinity T Cell Receptors
and link them to an antibody fragment which can activate the immune system to kill the targeted cancer or viral cells.
Amitabha Chattopadhyay and colleagues showed using lab tests, that long-term use of the drug caused significant changes in the structure and function of serotonin cell receptors
Leveraging the scientific expertise between the two organizations, Lilly and BioNTech will collaborate to identify and validate novel tumor targets and their corresponding T cell receptors
(TCRs) in one or more types of cancer.
Methods of the invention involve analyzing, changing, or modifying one or more amino acids in the junction region of a fusion protein in order to identify a T-cell epitope and reduce its ability to interact with a T cell receptor
As another embodiment, T cell receptor
mutants can be isolated by this method that are efficiently displayed on the yeast cell surface, providing a means of altering T cell receptor
binding affinity and specificity by library screening.
New York Society for the Relief of the Ruptured and Crippled (New York, NY) has patented four unique transcripts isolated from the beta chain of the T cell receptor
in T cells in the synovial tissue of a patient with rheumatoid arthritis.
