The technology relates generally to the field of immunology and relates in part to compositions and methods for controlling the proliferation of T cells, for example, therapeutic T cells. The methods further relate to compositions and methods for inducing an immune response in a subject.


Patent
Bellicum Pharmaceuticals | Date: 2015-03-06

The technology relates in part to compositions comprising modified caspase-9 polypeptides, compositions comprising nucleic acids coding for modified caspase-9 polypeptides, chimeric modified caspase-9 polypeptides, and methods of use thereof, including methods for cell therapy. Methods for cell therapy include modifying transfused cells to express an inducible modified caspase-9 protein, with reduced basal activity in the absence of the inducer.


Patent
Bellicum Pharmaceuticals | Date: 2013-03-06

Provided herein are methods for cell therapy by modifying transfused cells to express an inducible caspase 9 protein, so that the cells may be selectively killed if the patient experiences dangerous side effects. Provided also within relates in part to methods for preventing or treating Graft versus Host Disease by modifying T cells before administration to a patient, so that they may be selectively killed if GvHD develops in the patient.

Patent
Bellicum Pharmaceuticals | Date: 2013-03-06

Provided herein are methods for treating a solid tumor in a subject in need thereof by activating an immune response against a tumor antigen. Also provided are methods for treating a solid tumor in a subject in need thereof by activating antigen-presenting cells and eliciting an immune response against a tumor antigen. Also provided herein are optimized therapeutic treatments of solid tumors, which comprise determining the presence, absence or amount of a biomarker after the therapy has been administered, and determining whether a subsequent dose of the therapy should be maintained, increased, or decreased based on the biomarker assessment.
