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

Adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATL) is an aggressive lymphoid proliferative disease that exists under diverse clinical forms ranging from chronic to acute. Although leukemic cells from patients with ATL exhibit an intrinsic resistance to chemotherapy, monoclonal antibodies directed against CD25 (interleukin 2 receptor alpha [IL-2Ralpha] antibody) have been used as specific therapeutic agents. However, significant clinical results with these antibodies have been demonstrated only in chronic forms of ATL. In contrast to resting T cells, human T-cell lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1)-infected cells constitutively express high levels of surface transferrin receptor (TfR). Herein, we report the characterization of a new monoclonal antibody (mAb A24) directed against the human TfR and the evaluation of its capacity to block the proliferation of ATL cells ex vivo. We determined that A24 binds TfR with an equilibrium constant (K’d) of 2.7 nM and competes with transferrin for binding to TfR. A24 also inhibited [55Fe]-transferrin uptake in activated T cells and blocked T-cell proliferation. Moreover, A24 reduced and impaired TfR expression and recycling, respectively. Most important, we showed that A24 blocked the ex vivo proliferation of malignant T cells from both acute and chronic forms of ATL, through induction of programmed cell death. Therefore efficient therapeutic tools to treat acute forms of ATL might be derived from A24.
