The redirection of autologous lymphocytes to predefined tumor target Ags has considerable potential for the immunotherapeutic treatment of cancer; however, robust experimental systems for comparing various approaches have not been developed. Herein, we have generated a single chain variable domain anti-carcinoembryonic Ag (CEA) Fcepsilon receptor I gamma-chain fusion (scFv anti-CEA) receptor and demonstrated high-level expression of this chimeric receptor in naive mouse T lymphocytes by retroviral gene transduction. These gene-modified CTL were able to lyse CEA+ targets and secrete high levels of IFN-gamma following Ag stimulation. Depletion studies demonstrated that specific tumor cell cytotoxicity was mediated by gene-modified CD8+ T cells. Importantly, in increasingly stringent tests of efficacy in vivo, transduced CTL were sequentially shown to reject CEA+ colon carcinoma cells in a Winn assay and then reject established s.c. colon carcinoma in scid or syngeneic mice. Furthermore, using gene-targeted and scFv anti-CEA receptor-transduced donor CTL, perforin and IFN-gamma were demonstrated to be absolutely critical for the eradication of colon carcinoma in mice. In summary, we have developed a highly efficient gene transfer system for evaluating chimeric receptor expression in cytotoxic lymphocytes. This series of experiments has revealed the utility of scFv anti-CEA chimeras in providing mouse T cells the capacity to reject colon carcinoma in an Ag- and perforin-specific manner.
