sequencing to evaluate immune response to therapeutic HPV vaccines
sequencing could be used to evaluate immune responses to therapeutic HPV
vaccines. In cervical samples, patients with HPV receiving a therapeutic HPV16
vaccine had about a threefold increase of CD8+ T cell infiltration into lesions compared with
unvaccinated individuals. The vaccinated patients had activated effector
memory T cells and tertiary lymphoid structures, which correlated with
favorable prognosis. High throughput sequencing showed that TCRs in cervical
tissue were not very prevalent in peripheral blood, suggesting monitoring
lesion-specific T cell responses might give a better indication of vaccine
immunogenicity. Next steps could include using the method to monitor
vaccinated patients with HPV in order to determine if therapeutic resection is
