Next Generation NK Cell Therapy

A recent independent study cited using Cellero cryopreserved primary NK cells in their bid to design a more effective form of NK cell therapy. [1] Natural killer cells (NK cells) are a critical piece of the innate immune system, displaying cytotoxic activity against virally infected cells and other physiologically stressed cells such as cancer cells.…

Evaluating Immune Cell Cytotoxicity

Cellero showcases the latest techniques for measuring immune cell cytotoxicity in a new educational webinar. Cancer immunotherapy is a rapidly growing area of cancer treatment in which the body’s immune response to cancer cells is artificially stimulated. As the number of cancer immunotherapy treatments in clinical trials continues to increase, it is important that immune…

The COVID-19 Connection to Autoimmune Disease

There may well be a stronger link between COVID-19 and autoimmune disease than scientists first suspected. COVID-19 immune products are helping scientists connect the dots. A full year into the COVID-19 pandemic, scientists are still searching for answers on how the disease wreaks its devastation and why some people are so much more vulnerable than…

Disease State PBMCs Help Unlock Pathogenesis of Autoimmunity

Autoimmune diseases are chronic conditions that often occur in individuals with genetic predispositions toward that disease. The pathological mechanisms that lead to onset of disease vary and are not fully understood by modern science. Autoimmune diseases, such as celiac disease, lupus, and multiple sclerosis, are all characterized by the inappropriate inflammation and damage that result…

Cryopreserved Immune Cells to the Rescue!

  When the Covid-19 pandemic upended daily lives, biomedical research across the globe felt the strain as pandemic-related shipping and manufacturing delays began leading to supply line shortages. As lockdowns were instituted, cell therapy starting material became particularly difficult to source because the COVID-19 pandemic posed risks to donors traveling to hospitals and clinics. With…

Cellero Antigen-Specific T Cells Propel Breast Cancer Research

Antigen-Specific T Cells in Breast Cancer An independent publication from a cancer research group at Indiana University cites using Cellero antigen-specific T cell products to examine mechanisms of immune evasion.[1] Immune surveillance is the human body’s strongest defense against invasive cancer cells. The uncanny ability to evade that surveillance and grow aggressively is exactly what…
