CAR-T療法

個別化医療の実現に向けて

概要

最先端の治療には最先端のソリューションを

キメラ抗原受容体T細胞(CAR-T)療法は、生物学的製剤開発の新しい分野です。この治療法は、様々な形態のがんを標的とし、「生きた治療法」として作用します。患者自身のTリンパ球細胞を利用する個別化医療のひとつです。

CARsは人工的な受容体タンパク質で、ほとんどが天然のサブドメインで構成されています。この治療法を研究している科学者は、実験室でのデータ管理に多くの課題を抱えています。

サイトカイン放出症候群のような副作用を回避するため、タンパク質を正確に定義し、その完全な化学記述を捉えることは、知的財産(IP)保護のために非常に重要です。また、サブドメインと関連するエンティティ間の関係を追跡することも不可欠です。このような複雑なワークフローには、柔軟性があり標準化されたソリューションが必要です。また、科学者は十分な情報に基づいた迅速な意思決定を行うために、すべてのデータをリアルタイムで確認する必要があります。

課題

データの記録

CAR-Tの研究では、実験の計画と実行の繰り返しが必要です。研究が進むにつれて、実験はアドホックなものから標準化されたワークフローへと移行します。

データの追跡

CAR-Tの研究では、さまざまな前駆体タンパク質から多くの候補分子が生まれます。CARsとそのサブドメイン間の関係を追跡することは重要で、その情報はいつでも入手できるようにしておく必要があります。

データの保護

CAR-Tの研究では、抗原結合と細胞応答の適切な組み合わせを持つ新規のCARsを設計し、その貴重な研究データを保護する必要があります。

iconDotmatics Bioregister

Dotmatics’ Bioregister is a web-based application for registering sequence-based, chemically-modified and structureless biological entities, allowing biologics discovery organizations to ensure entity uniqueness and protect their intellectual property. Bioregister supports management of a broad set of biologics entities, including DNA, RNA, peptides and proteins, antibodies, conjugates, non-natural peptides and nucleotides,  plasmids, cell lines and user-defined entities. It also enables users to record batches and samples for these entities, purification and expression information, and other protein production data.

  • Records and manages biologic entities, including chemically-modified sequences and sequence-less entities, and associated attribute data and lineages
  • Generates chemical representation (where possible) of natural and non-natural entities
  • Determines the uniqueness of entities and assigns registration numbers, including using full chemical-based uniqueness where possible
  • Manages data associated with entity production, such as protein expression, purification and characterization
  • Records batches and samples of protein produced for the entities, with full relationship tracking

iconDotmatics Studies Notebook

Dotmatics Studies Notebook is an Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN) with flexible templating to capture, store and search experiments from all scientific disciplines.
