IMMUNOSABR is geared towards opening up a new paradigm in treating metastatic cancer by obtaining clinical proof of concept for a novel bi-modal curative treatment strategy. High precision stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) is combined with immunotherapy to form a powerful synergistic anti-tumour strategy. The approach relies on the direct cytotoxic effect of SABR, the abscopal effect of radiation observed at distance from the irradiated metastatic site(s), and the effect of the tumour-specific immunocytokine L19-IL2 (watch our animation explaining the concept at https://youtu.be/6wDE6RkrikA). Palliative treatment is the current standard of care for patients with metastatic non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), unless there is an actionable mutation. By using the concept of limited metastatic disease (10 sites, WHO 0-1: oligo\) we aim to develop a therapy with curative intent. IMMUNOSABR will gather evidence for the clinical efficacy of our bi-modal treatment strategy in a multicentre randomised phase II study (clinicaltrials.gov no. NCT02735850) in patients with limited metastatic NSCLC. IMMUNOSABR is complemented by two strong biomarker work packages which focus on developing an ambitious personalised biomarker strategy, to identify patients who can benefit from the novel treatment strategy. This includes promising non-invasive imaging techniques and state-of-the-art immunological monitoring approaches on tumour tissue and blood. IMMUNOSABR will spur further development of L19-IL2 as a commercial drug and translate the bi-modal treatment strategy towards clinical implementation.

T-cell engineering strategies for Cancer therapy, either Chimeric Antigen Receptors (CARs) or TCR transfer holds promise to revolutionize cancer treatment. There are, however, considerable barriers to be overcome to take this form of therapy to a format that can benefit all EU citizens with a wide range of common cancers. The aim of this consortium is to exploit advances in T-cell engineering to allow the full potential of CAR therapy to be unleashed. At present, CAR therapy requires a bespoke autologous therapeutic product for each patient. This greatly limits practicality, scalability and commercialisation. The development of a strategy for creation of universal engineered T-cells is the first key aim of this consortium. There is an increased appreciation of the immunological hostilities (CAR) T-cells face in the tumour microenvironment, and prevention of this local immune suppressive effect will likely be critical in permitting effective tumour control. The second main aim of this proposal is therefore to engineer CAR T-cells to be resistant to the hostile microenvironment. CAR T-cells can only be effective if they can access the tumour site. Exploiting the fact that neo-angiogenesis is a hallmark of neoplastic progression, the third aim of the consortium is to utilise endothelial cues of neo-angiogenesis to direct CAR T-cell migration and activity. The central technological theme of this consortium is the application of TALEN-mediated gene editing strategies alongside genetic modification with integrating vectors. Using this approach, we will implement a clinical study of universal CAR T-cells in refractory lymphoma. Further, this work will be complemented with highly focused development of T-cells which are resistant to hostile microenvironments and which can home to sites of neovascularization. The legacy this consortium wishes is commercialization of universal CAR therapy for a broad swathe of human cancers.
