PD-1/PD-L1 blockade can confer durable benefits in the treatment of metastatic cancers, but the response rate remains modest and potential adverse effects occur sometimes. Concentrating immunotherapeutic agents at the site of disease was believed to break local immune tolerance and reduce systemic toxicity. E1A-engineered mesenchymal stromal cell (MSC.E1A) was an attractive transfer system that preferentially homing and treating cancer metastasis, through which the tumor cells were modified by locally replicated adenoviruses to release CD3-HAC, a bifunctional fusion protein that anti-CD3 scfv linked with high-affinity consensus (HAC) PD-1. Subsequently, CD3-HAC, wbich was bound on PD-L1-positive breast cancer cells, recruited T cells to exhibit a potent antitumor immunity incombination with immune checkpoint blockade.
