Seminar Abstract: Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) derived from somatic cells of patients hold great promise for autologous cell therapies. One of the possible applications of iPSCs is to use them as a cell source for producing autologous lymphocytes for cell-based therapy against cancer. However, therapeutic efficacy of iPSC-derived regenerated T cells remains to be elucidated. We have recently generated iPSCs from T-cell receptor transgenic T cells, and established a syngeneic preclinical mouse model of evaluating therapeutic efficacy of iPSC-derived T cells. I will present recent progress and our data in the field of regenerative medicine in the context of cancer immunotherapy.
