The collaboration combines both breakthrough technologies to develop next generations of specific and hyperactive off-the-shelf NK cells
for allogeneic immuno-oncology therapies.
It is known that peripheral blood NK cells
are phenotypically and functionally different from endometrial NK cells
, with less than 10% resembling endometrial NK cells
and differing in surface antigen expression.
Previous studies have revealed a destructive action of the NK cells
on pancreatic islet beta cells and their significant involvement in the development of the disease.
Additionally, pregnant Ly49 knock-out mice had reduced NK cell
infiltration and impaired decidual angiogenesis that was associated with reduced expression of VEGF (30).
T cells, 82-95% for the B cells, 68-94% for the monocytes, and 85-97% for the NK cells
The factors contributing to NK cell
dysfunction were demonstrated by many studies.
were cultured in RPMI1640 medium supplemented with 10% heat-inactivated fetal calf serum (PAA, Pasching, Austria), 2 mM L-glutamine, 100 U/ml penicillin and 100 U/ml streptomycin (all from Life Technologies, Paisley, UK).

Jude discovery that specialized immune cells called natural killer (NK) cells dispatched cancer cells more efficiently when the NK cells
carried a particular version of a KIR protein on their surface.
A study of NK cell
function in a cohort of ECs demonstrated only limited and less effective HIV-1 inhibitory capacity in vitro compared with CD8 T-cells.
The final diagnosis was of refractory CD with IgA, IgG2 and classical NK cell
