Engineering Antigen Presentation in a Natural Way to Direct the Immune System 1. Antigen (What to target) Antigen presenting cells (APCs) show peptide antigen on MHC-I and MHC-II that T cells look at using their T cell receptors (TCR) 2. Context (Activation vs. Tolerance) Once a T cell’s TCR is engaged, it looks for clues via APC surface receptors and cytokines for whether to become activated or tolerized Determinants of an Immune Reaction APC T Cell Cytokines Surface receptors + Context Indications: Activating cells (e.g., CD8, CD4) are deleted or anergized and Tregs are upregulated, blocking unwanted immune response against the target CD8 Killer T cells are activated to attack desired target and CD4 T cells are activated to support a broader reaction (e.g., antibodies) Anticipated Outcome: Antigen: Immune Tolerance Immune Activation CD8 Killer T cells CD8 Killer T cells CD4 Helper T cells Regulatory T cells T Cells APC …tolerization against the target …activation against the target T Cells

The Therapeutic Potential and Historical Challenges of Driving CD8 Tumor Responses Responders Progressors …However, there has been limited success in the vaccine field to date. The only approved cell-based cancer vaccine did not induce T cell infiltration into tumor centers in a Phase 2 neoadjuvant trial – immune responses were limited to tumor margins. L Fong et. al. J Natl Cancer Inst. 2014 Limited clinical benefit shown to date as monotherapy or in combination V “Positive prognostic value of CD8 T cells was confirmed in more than 18,700 patients across 17 solid cancer types” Bruni et al, Nature Reviews 2020 PC Tumeh et. al. Nature. 2014 Correlation of CD8 TIL with clinical benefit has been a strong motivation for developing therapeutic vaccines… Current vaccine primary mode of action: Desired mode of action: CD8 Killer T Cells Antibodies CD4 Helper Cells
