Immune Cell Killing, Single Spheroid

Blog Immune Cell Killing Single Spheroid Banner

Watch how Herceptin alone, or peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) alone, have no significant effect on the growth of a SKOV-3 ovarian tumor spheroid.  Whereas a combination of Herceptin and PBMCs so effectively kill a SKOV-3 spheroid.  These stunning phase and fluorescence images were collected continuously without interruption, over a 10 day interval.

It is fascinating to watch antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) in a 3D cell culture model, being monitored.  HER2-positive SKOV-3 spheroids formed (3 days) in 96-well ULA plates were treated with Herceptin (mAb targeting HER2 receptors) and PBMCs (E:T, 2.5:1).
