Summary for Patent: 6,403,104
Title: Hapten-conjugated mammalian cells and methods of making and using thereof
Abstract:The present invention is directed to mammalian cells conjugated to a hapten and methods of making and using thereof. Conjugating hapten to mammalian cells is a useful way of preventing cells from growing and may be used in the place of any conventional treatment, for example, irradiation. Thus, the invention relates to mammalian cells in general, for example human cells, which cells are in substantially no growth phase and a method of placing the cells in a substantially no growth phase by conjugating them to a hapten. The invention is further directed to compositions containing hapten-modified tumor cells and extracts and methods of treating cancer by administering a therapeutically effective amount of a composition containing a tumor cell or tumor cell extract to a subject in need of such treatment. The tumor cells and extracts of the invention and compositions thereof are capable of eliciting T lymphocytes that have a property of infiltrating a mammalian tumor, eliciting an inflammatory immune response to a mammalian tumor, eliciting a delayed-type hypersensitivity response to a mammalian tumor and/or stimulating T lymphocytes in vitro. The invention also relates to an effective vaccination schedule useful for inducing an antitumor response in a mammalian patient suffering from cancer by inducing at least one of the following: tumor necrosis, tumor regression, tumor inflammation, tumor infiltration by activated T lymphocytes, delayed-type hypersensitivity response, and prolongation of patient survival. Furthermore, the invention relates to an improved, simplified and economical method for preparing the hapten-conjugated tumor cells for administration as a vaccine by eliminating a separate step of treating cells (by irradiation, for example) to place them in a no growth phase.
