Virus-specific T cells
Viral or fungal infections are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the period of immune recovery after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT)1,2. Adoptively transferred antigen-specific T cells have been shown to restore protective immunity and control established adenovirus (AdV)3,4,13, cytomegalovirus (CMV)5,6, and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)7,8 infections after HSCT in adults as well as in children.
However, the manufacturing of those rare antigen-specific T cells under GMP-compliant conditions is lengthy and very labor-intensive. The CliniMACS® Cytokine Capture System (CCS) (IFN-gamma) addresses all these challenges and provides the perfect solution.
Utilizing the CliniMACS Prodigy® Platform, this method allows the fast and fully automated generation of viable antigen-specific CD4+ and CD8+ T cells, e.g., with specificity for HCMV9–12, EBV14, AdV14, BKV15 or multivirus-specificity14. The whole process happens in a closed sterile system and only takes approximately 12 hours.
The first step of the fully automated CliniMACS Prodigy® manufacturing process is the stimulation of PBMCs with the antigen of interest, e.g. with MACS® GMP HCMV PepTivator® pp65 (CMV). The automated antigen-specific stimulation of T cells is performed with high quality and GMP-compliant reagents.
Stimulation with MACS® GMP PepTivator® Peptide Pools
MACS GMP PepTivator Peptide Pools are overlapping oligopeptides covering the complete sequence of a respective antigen. They provide the following benefits:
T cell culture with TexMACS™ GMP Medium
TexMACS GMP Medium is an optimized T cell culture medium.
During the automated CliniMACS Prodigy process, the target cells are enriched by a 2-step labeling approach.
The CliniMACS Catchmatrix Reagent and the CliniMACS Enrichment Reagent are components of the CliniMACS Cytokine Capture System (IFN-gamma).
For the manufacture and use of the antigen-specific T cells, national and international legislation and regulations must be followed.
Miltenyi Biotec as the provider of the CliniMACS CCS-IFN System does not give any recommendation regarding the use of the manufactured cells for therapeutic purposes and does not make any claim regarding a clinical benefit.
