Tinkering with T cells

How researchers are tweaking engineered immune cells’ cancer-targeting receptors — and why it matters

May 15, 2018 | By Susan Keown / Fred Hutch News Service

These immune cells are the cornerstone of emerging cancer therapies. And their unimaginably tiny, cancer-targeting molecular weapons — their receptors — are the focus of intense scientific tinkering.

High-throughput sequencing outpaces flow cytometry for earliest detection of cancer relapse

Next-generation, high-speed DNA-decoding technology detects minimal residual disease in nearly double the number of leukemia patients than current gold standard method

May 21, 2012 | By Kristen Woodward

A study led by Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Public Health Sciences Division computational biologist Dr. Harlan Robins has found that a next-generation, high-speed DNA-decoding technology called high-throughput sequencing can detect the earliest signs of potential relapse in nearly twice the number of leukemia patients as compared to flow cytometry, the current gold standard for detecting minimal residual disease.

T-cell receptors reveal immune system similarities

Finding may lead to new cancer detection, diagnostic and treatment methods

Sept. 7, 2010 | By Dean Forbes

When it comes to the mechanics of the human immune system, we are all more alike than previously thought, according to a new Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center study.
