Rather, ACT is ideally suited for late stage patients in which ACT has demonstrated the ability to eliminate even very large tumor burdens. On average, breast cancer and AML are also characterized by a low mutational load [43]. Endris V, Buchhalter I, Allgauer M, Rempel E, Lier A, Volckmar AL, et al. Recent studies suggest that this approach could also be successfully translated to other solid malignancies. Tumor reactive T cells can be isolated from tumor tissue or tumor draining lymph nodes [101,102,103,104,105,106]. Brix N, Tiefenthaller A, Anders H, Belka C, Lauber K. Abscopal, immunological effects of radiotherapy: narrowing the gap between clinical and preclinical experiences. Recent advances in lung cancer treatment are emerging from new immunotherapies that target T-cell inhibitory receptors, such as programmed cell death-1 (PD-1).

Disruption of this axis by blocking monoclonal antibodies can induce durable remissions in different cancer types and has led to numerous FDA and EMA approvals, among others, for the treatment of melanoma, lung cancer, urothelial cancer, head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), renal cell cancer (RCC) and Hodgkin’s disease [3]. Artificial antigen-presenting cells (aAPCs) can be used in cancer immunotherapy for T cell expansion and activation (1–5). eCollection 2014. Recurrence-free survival was reported to be superior while severe adverse events were significantly lower in patients treated with nivolumab (12-month recurrence-free survival: 70.5% vs 60.5%; grade 3 or 4 adverse events: 14.4% versus 45.9% for patients receiving nivolumab or ipilimumab, respectively).

While these results support the high therapeutic potential of CAR T cell therapy, a cohort of patients does not respond to – or relapses after – CAR T cell therapy. Costantini A, Julie C, Dumenil C, Helias-Rodzewicz Z, Tisserand J, Dumoulin J, et al. Another important consideration is the tumor environment which is substantially different to the one seen in the above referenced hematological cancers and impedes CAR T cell efficacy [96]. 2014;20(11):2831–7.

However, recently presented data suggests that not all patients with MSI/dMMR tumors also have a high TMB [50]. In this trial, patients received 2 Gy of local radiotherapy as part of a so-called “in situ vaccination” (ISV: radiotherapy plus intratumoral application of Fms-related tyrosine kinase 3 ligand [Flt3L] and a Toll-like receptor 3 [TLR3] ligand). For axicabtagen-ciloleucel, “real world” efficacy was confirmed by data from seventeen US academic centers who evaluated axicabtagen-ciloleucel outside of clinical trials, independent of the manufacturer after commercialization. 2018;24(8):1872–80.

For checkpoint blockade, current studies focus on combinational approaches, perioperative use, new tumor entities, response prediction, toxicity management and use in special patient populations. PubMed Central  The primary study endpoint - response rate in none-irradiated tumor lesions – was not met.

PubMed  2019;7(2 Supplement):A037-A. Different strategies for adoptive T cell therapy. The addition of atezolizumab not only improved the patients’ PFS (PFS), but also their overall survival (OS) [14]. One possibility might be allogeneic stem cell transplantation, which has recently been reported to improve prognosis after anti-CD19 CAR T cell therapy for ALL patients who had not received a previous stem cell transplantation [82]. 2018;24(9):1441–8.

In this regard, it remained unclear whether a CPI therapy is also conceivable in these patients. Up-to-date reviews providing a comprehensive overview of approved indications for different CPIs have been published previously [3, 4]. 2015;16(5):522–30. Recent studies controlled for lead-time bias reported conflicting data: a large monocentric study including different cancer types presented at ESMO 2018 did not find a correlation between IrAEs and response to checkpoint blockade after controlling for lead-time bias [67].
