Abstract

T cells infiltrating pre- and postvaccine metastases obtained from melanoma patients vaccinated with either dinitrophenyl (DNP)-modified autologous tumor or with the MAGE-3.A1 peptide display selective T cell receptor (TCR) β chain variable region (BV) repertoire changes at the tumor site as a consequence of vaccination. Restricted sets of BV families expand in all postvaccine lesions when compared with prevaccine specimens and often contain dominant clones. A protocol devised to obtain T cell lines highly enriched for expression of a given BV region through the use of anti-BV monoclonal antibodies was used to understand whether responses to specific antigen(s) accounted for these clonal expansions. In one of the patients vaccinated with DNP-modified tumor cells, BV-driven selection of the T lymphocytes expanded in two infiltrated postvaccine metastases resulted in T cell lines able to exert HLA class I-restricted lysis of the autologous tumor. These results indicate that TCR repertoire analysis at the tumor site facilitates the detection of T cell responses elicited by a vaccine and potentially cytotoxic for the autologous tumor.
