Description

Immunotherapies that block CD47 stimulate macrophage phagocytosis of cancer, and they synergize with anti-CD20 passive immunotherapy in preclinical human models. CD47-blocking therapies are now under investigation in clinical trials for patients with solid and hematologic malignancies. For this presentation, I will describe our work applying these concepts to preclinical models of canine lymphoma. We validated the canine CD47/SIRPα axis as an immunotherapeutic target for canine cancer, and we have identified therapeutic agents that block canine CD47 and stimulate macrophage phagocytosis of canine lymphoma cells. We found that CD47-blocking therapies could enhance the efficacy of a speciated anti-canine CD20 antibody that is under development for canine lymphoma. The data will provide justification for testing CD47-blocking therapies in combination with anti-CD20 passive immunotherapy in companion animals. Since canine and human lymphoma bear remarkable similarity and treatment strategies, application of these strategies to the veterinary setting will inform future studies on targeting CD47 and CD20 for human disease.

Objectives

Learning Objectives:
• Understand the rationale behind cancer immunotherapy
• Appreciate the importance of evolution for species-specific and cross-species applications of biological therapies, including agents used for CD47 blockade and for CD20-directed immunotherapy
• Recognize the therapeutic principle of CD47 blockade for cancer
• Have awareness of the mechanisms of action of CD20-based immunotherapy for cancer
• Understand the mechanisms responsible for synergy of combining CD47 blockade and anti-CD20 immunotherapies for B-cell lymphoma
