ONCOLIFE (pages 32-33): Elicio's innovative approach involves coupling this therapy with AMP immunotherapy, which is strategically delivered to lymph nodes - the command centers of the immune system. This combination has shown remarkable success in not only eradicating established murine solid tumors that were resistant to TCR-T cell monotherapy but also in providing long-term protection against tumor recurrence.

MIT NEWS: Therapeutic cancer vaccines are an appealing strategy for treating malignancies. In theory, when a patient is injected with peptide antigens — protein fragments from mutant proteins only expressed by tumor cells — T cells learn to recognize and attack cancer cells expressing the corresponding protein. By teaching the patient’s own immune system to attack cancer cells, these vaccines ideally would not only eliminate tumors but prevent them from recurring.

MSK: A new vaccine shows encouraging early results as a potential off-the-shelf treatment for certain patients with pancreatic or colorectal cancer, according to a study co-led by researchers at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). The vaccine targets tumors with mutations (or changes) in the KRAS gene, a driving force in many cancers.

ACIR: Colorectal cancer (CRC) and pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) have a low survival rate, low infiltration of tumor-specific tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL), infrequent neoantigen mutations, and checkpoint inhibitors are largely ineffective in PDAC and subtypes of CRC. Common mutations in the oncogenes driver KRAS (mKRAS) however can serve as immunotherapy targets.
