#ALT# Solutions for Evaluation of CAR Expressions

Chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy is a new cancer treatment. T-cells are taken from the patient and genetically engineered to express a chimeric receptor that recognizes a specific tumor-associated antigen. The resulting CAR-expressing T cells, when reintroduced into the patient, target and eliminate TAA-expressing tumor cells. Evaluating CAR expression is an essential step in the production of CAR-T cells. ACROBiosystems has developed an extensive collection of recombinant proteins to support CAR-T therapy development, including fluorescent-labeled target antigens and pre-biotinylated proteins, uniquely suitable for CAR expression evaluation.

 How to Reduce Background Noise in IHC
 
How to Reduce Background Noise in IHCImmunohistochemistry (IHC) is a popular method for visualizing the presence, concentration, and distribution of molecules within tissue. The method utilizes specific antibodies that bind to target antigens and is a very effective way of studying tissue architecture. However, cross-reactivity, low specificity and problems with antibody preparation can cause serious issues with background noise.

Immune system discovery could inform the development of new stem cell therapiesA discovery of how stem cells are protected from viruses could inform the development of therapies for use in medicine, research suggests. The finding could help research aimed at boosting the immune response of stem cells - early stage cells with the potential to become specialized tissues - for use in treating disease or damaged tissues.
