Many cancer therapies rely on immunotherapeutic approaches. Chimeric antigen receptor T cell (CAR-T) immunotherapies have transformed treatment options for many cancer patients. The cellular composition of the CAR-T cells, including the proportions CD8+ T cell subpopulations, is a critical success factor for efficient CAR-T immunotherapy. CD8+ T cells play a crucial role in eliminating tumor cells, with various subpopulations playing different roles in tumor response. Single-cell RNA-seq profiling can serve as an analytical tool to capture cell-to-cell variability in CAR-T cells and identify the right cell types to ensure cell expansion, persistence, and anti-tumor activity.

Here, utilizing the Genedata Selector® software, we analyzed a public single-cell RNA-seq dataset that was generated from the CAR-T infusion products and blood of patients with durable persistence to immunotherapy. Utilizing the automated single-cell RNA-seq workflow, as implemented in the Genedata Selector® software for this study, enabled the rapid testing of our hypothesis by profiling CD8+ T cell population before and after infusion and identifying transcriptional profiles associated with positive therapeutic outcome to CAR-T immunotherapy.
