Immunomodulation of the Tumor Microenvironment and Immunotherapy of Thoracic Cancers

Team leaders: Dr Christophe Blanquart & Jean-François Fonteneau

Our projects aim at understanding the tumor microenvironment of aggressive cancers, especially malignant pleural mesothelioma and lung cancer, to develop innovative therapeutic strategies by combining their direct cytotoxicity with induction of specific antitumor immune responses.

Research projects

Our team has an expertise in developing novel therapies that exploit immunogenic cell death induction in order to improve the treatment of cancers that are known to be resistant to conventional therapies, like mesothelioma, a type of cancer due to exposure to asbestos, or lung cancer. Two main approaches are currently being developed in our laboratory: epigenetic therapy and cancer virotherapy.

The first approach deals with the identification, vectorization and use of new epigenetic drugs. Our results show that these molecules, developed in collaboration with Dr P. Bertrand (CNRS, Poitiers), have, in addition to their cytotoxic activities, interesting immunological properties such as the ability to induce the expression of new antigens by tumor cells. Along with Dr E. Ishow (Université de Nantes), we also work on the development of vectors for these molecules to address them directly to the tumor in order to increase their efficacy and diminish potential side effects.

Our second approach consists in the use of oncolytic viruses that are able to target specifically tumor cells without harming the healthy ones. We mainly focus on the use of an attenuated strain of measles virus, produced by the group of Dr F. Tangy (Institut Pasteur, Paris), of which we demonstrated the antitumor properties against mesothelioma, melanoma, lung and colorectal adenocarcinomas. When infected, these different types of tumor cells are induced toward immunogenic cell death that allows activation of several immune populations, for example myeloid and plasmacytoid dendritic cells that are able to activate cytotoxic T cell responses by cross-presenting tumor antigens.

To improve and develop our innovative therapies, our third goal is to better understand the tumor microenvironment (TME) of thoracic cancers. In the TME, stromal cells are corrupted by malignant cells, creating a permissive microenvironment which drives cancer progression. Our team has an expertise in studying this communication between tumor, immune and stromal cells such as endothelial cells. We are particularly interested in unraveling how endothelial cells could modulate the TME and response to treatments. Several other aspects are currently being investigated at our laboratory: direct interaction, soluble factors (IL-34), non-coding RNAs and extracellular vesicles. We recently demonstrated that EVs from tumor cells reduce the immune response against them through the transfer of microRNAs (miRNAs) targeting key genes of T cell functions.
