Immunovative Therapies | Date: 2016-03-22

The present disclosure relates to an apparatus for dispensing biologic drug compositions. The apparatus includes an automated device that can store a biologic drug under the desired conditions. When authorized, the automated device can process the stored biologic drug by performing the desired processing steps to prepare the biologic drug for administration to a patient. The automated device may include a computing system to transmit patient information to a remote location and receive authorization from a remote location.

The disclosure herein relates generally to immunotherapy and, more specifically, to the use of immunotherapy for treating tumors and pathogen infected tissues. The immunotherapy relates to first priming patients with allogeneic cells designed to be rejected by a Th1 mediated mechanism, then inducing in situ necrosis or apoptosis in a tumor or pathogen infected lesion. Necrosis or apoptosis can be induced by methods such as cryotherapy, irreversible electroporation, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, ultrasound therapy, ethanol chemoablation, microwave thermal ablation, radiofrequency energy or a combination thereof applied against at least a portion of the tumor or pathogen infected tissue. One or more doses of allogeneic cells (e.g., Th1 cells) are then delivered within or proximate to the tumor or pathogen-infected tissue in the primed patient. The present invention provides an immunotherapeutic strategy to develop de-novo systemic (adaptive) immunity to a tumor or pathogen.

This invention relates to compositions and methods for immunotherapy of cancer. Specifically, a method of cancer immunotherapy is described which results in the systemic liquidation of both solid and metastatic tumors whereever they reside in the body. The compositions include activated allogeneic Th1 cells that when administered appropriately lead to liquidation of tumors. The method includes administering priming doses of the therapeutic composition, ablation of a selected tumor lesion along with intratumoral injection of the composition and then infusion of the therapeutic composition. These steps enable the systemic liquidation of tumors secondary to immune cell infiltration and leads to immune-mediated tumor eradication.

The present invention relates to compositions and methods that promote the induction of IL-12 in a patient. The composition includes activated allogeneic cells that are administered to a patient with a disease such as cancer. Administration of the composition skews the patients immune response to a Th1 environment and produces detectable levels of IL-12 in the patients plasma, without any IL-12 related toxicity.

Methods of treating a patient with human immunodeficiency virus are disclosed. The method includes a providing intradermal and intravenous doses of a aTh1 composition that can increase the CD4+ cells in a patient that are resistant to HIV. The description includes a method for viral load reduction and a viral purge method. The regimen leads to a spike in the viral load and a then a return to baseline or lower levels of the virus and can lead to reduction and/or elimination of the latent viral reservoirs. Kits configured to provide intradermal doses and intravenous doses according to the regimen are also included.

The present invention relates to methods of suppressing the immune tolerance of a disease or disease antigens in a patient. The method also promotes the activity of the effectore T lymphocytes. The invention includes administering a therapeutic composition that promotes a Th1 environment in the patient while decreasing the immunosuppressive activity of Treg cells that can lead to disease antigen tolerance and immunoavoidance of the disease antigens by the patient. The therapeutic composition includes allogeneic emTh-1 cells. The therapeutic composition can also include disease antigens such as the chaperone-rich cell lysate of the disease antigen.


Patent
Immunovative Therapies | Date: 2016-02-11

A method of manipulating allogeneic cells for use in allogeneic cell therapy providing a composition of highly activated allogeneic T-cells which are infused into immunocompetent cancer patients to elicit a novel anti-tumor immune mechanism, or Mirror Effect. In contrast to current allogeneic cell therapy protocols where T-cells in the graft mediate the beneficial graft vs. tumor (GVT) and detrimental graft vs. host (GVH) effects, the allogeneic cells of the present invention stimulate host T-cells to mediate the mirror of these effects. The mirror of the GVT effect is the host vs. tumor (HVT) effect. The mirror of the GVH effect is the host vs. graft (HVG) effect The anti-tumor HVT effect occurs in conjunction with a non-toxic HVG rejection effect. The highly activated allogeneic cells of the invention can be used to stimulate host immunity in a complete HLA mis-matched setting in a patient.
