A patent application (Publication Number: US20240016846A1) discloses a novel PD-1 chimeric cytokine receptor designed for potential therapeutic applications. The chimeric receptor comprises a PD-1 ectodomain, a transmembrane domain, a Janus Kinase (JAK)-binding domain, and a recruiting domain, with the recruiting domain being a STAT-recruiting domain in some embodiments. The receptor can be clustered or dimerized, with each monomer containing specific domains as mentioned above. The PD-1 ectodomain can have wild type sequences or mutations, including high affinity sequences, and can also include antigen binding domains for PD-1 ligands.

Furthermore, the patent application describes the use of this chimeric cytokine receptor in engineered immune cells, particularly T-cells, for potential cancer treatment. The engineered immune cells express both chimeric antigen receptors (CAR) and the chimeric cytokine receptor in stoichiometrically equal amounts. The method involves introducing the receptor-encoding polynucleotide into immune cells, which can be derived from various sources like T-cells, dendritic cells, or NK-cells. The engineered immune cells can be used in pharmaceutical compositions for cancer treatment, especially in cases where the tumor expresses PD-L1 and/or PD-L2. The method also includes administering anti-PD-1 antibodies like nivolumab or pembrolizumab in conjunction with the engineered immune cells for enhanced therapeutic effects against solid or liquid tumors.
