Hypoxic Regions in Mesothelioma Likely Modulate Cross-Talk between Tumour Cells, Macrophages and Endothelial Cells and Regulate Responses to Immunotherapy
MetadataShow full item record
The goal of this research was to develop in vitro mesothelioma models representing normoxic (20% O2) or hypoxic (2% O2) environments (likely representing a large mesothelioma tumour), to study the crosstalk between mesothelioma cells, tumour-associated macrophages and endothelial cells. The models were used to study the effect of immunotherapies involving interleukin-2 and anti-CD40 antibody on these cells’ relationships. The data show that hypoxia influences the function of these cells and their responses to immunotherapies.
