Deficient anti-tumor immunity often results from an immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment (TME) that renders antigen presenting cells (APCs) unable to effectively stimulate T cells. Recent studies indicate that local delivery of immunostimulatory adjuvants can activate tumor resident APCs, driving uptake, processing and presentation of tumor neoantigens to T cells that mediate anti-tumor immunity. To overcome challenges associated with intratumoral delivery of such adjuvants, we developed a n...

Abstract Chronic inflammation in adipose tissue, possibly related to adipose cell hypertrophy, hypoxia, and/or intestinal leakage of bacteria and their metabolic products, likely plays a critical role in the development of obesity-associated insulin resistance (IR). Cells of both the innate and adaptive immune system residing in adipose tissues, as well as in the intestine, participate in this process. Thus, M1 macrophages, IFN-γ-secreting Th1 cells, CD8+ T cells, and B cells promote IR, in part...
