Expression of Cancer Immunotherapy Targets in Patient Material
Malignant ascites collected from epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) patients have been used to identify biomarkers of chemotherapy response. The ascites are also used in discovery programs of small molecule inhibitors of the tryptophan (Trp) catabolizing enzymes TDO and IDO1. High surface expression of PD-L1, and high expression of IDO1 or TDO2 was observed in several patient samples. In an ongoing study, which includes 100 patients with high-grade serous ovarian cancer, NTRC determines the immune status of the ascites, the in vitro drug response of tumor cells isolated from ascites, and the cancer gene mutation. Results are related to clinical responses.
