 Project Title: “Anti-CD229 Chimeric Antigen Receptor T Cells for the Treatment of Multiple Myeloma”

Abstract (layman): Multiple myeloma (MM) is an incurable blood cancer. It has recently been shown that the immune system is able to control tumor growth and in some cases to even cure cancer. Specifically, immune cells engineered to express chimeric antigen receptors (CAR) that specifically recognize structures on the surface of tumor cells have shown remarkable clinical results in patients with blood cancers. We have discovered a protein specifically expressed on MM cells and developed several CARs recognizing this antigen that are able to kill MM cells. We propose to determine the therapeutic potential of these CARs in vitro and in vivo.

Multiple Myeloma is a bone marrow cancer. It affects the blood producing cells in the bone marrow. Although there is no cure for myeloma, it is a treatable disease. There are approximately 15,000 new cases of myeloma in the United States each year.

When Rob Bradford was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma he was given 32 months to live. With the assistance and support from the Moffitt Cancer Center, the Florida Hospital Oncology, and the International Myeloma Foundation, Rob fought his battle for 10 years until his passing in December, 2014.

Please help us honor this courageous man and participate with us to fulfill Rob's dream of finding a cure - Together we can make a difference.

In the future we hope to expand not only our playing time together, but also in our giving back. Hopefully within the next year or two we can add more activities to "Coach Rob's Benefit Bash". We would also like to be able to start a fund with H. Lee Moffit for patients who cannot afford treatment.
