A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Using intravital imaging in a model of B cell lymphoma, we investigated the mechanisms and limitations of anti-CD20 antibody (Ab) therapy.

Anti-CD20 Ab can act through complement-dependent cytotoxicity, Ab-dependent cellular cytotoxicity and Ab-dependent phagocytosis (ADP). We used functional reporters to detect phagocytosis and apoptosis events at the tumor site in a preclinical model of B cell lymphoma. We exploited the distinct pH sensitivity of CFP and YFP to unambiguously identify phagocytosis events by a color change. At the tumor site, the phagocytosis by macrophages was the primary mode of tumor elimination (>90% of tumor cell death), but the number of phagocytosis events dropped abruptly after 1-2hr, resulting in partial tumor depletion. The low macrophages density in tumor-rich areas was also identified as a limiting factor for anti-tumor activity.

Overcoming spatiotemporal bottlenecks in tumor-targeting Ab therapy (increasing macrophage density and prolonging their activity) should thus be considered in order to potentiate treatment efficacy.
