The progress of gamma delta (γδ) T cell-based immunotherapy represents an advanced approach in cancer treatment that is swiftly augmenting domain due to its plausibility to treat many disorders. This form of immunotherapy harnesses the potential of gamma delta T cells, a subset of T lymphocytes that play a crucial role in both innate and adaptive immunity. The advent of gamma delta T cell-based immunotherapy has its roots in the discovery of these cells in the 1980s.

In dichotomy with conventional alpha beta T cells, gamma delta T cells recognize antigens in a non-MHC-restricted manner, allowing them to respond to a broader range of stress-induced antigens commonly expressed by cancer cells. This characteristic, along with their ability to bridge innate and adaptive immunity, made gamma delta T cells an attractive target for cancer immunotherapy. Early clinical studies investigates gamma delta T cell-based therapies began in the late 1990s and early 2000s. These initial trials focused primarily on expanding and activating patients’ own gamma delta T cells ex vivo using phosphoantigens or aminobisphosphonates, then reinfusing them to target cancer cells. While these studies demonstrated the safety of the approach, clinical efficacy was limited, prompting researchers to investigating more advanced strategies.

Year by year, as consideration of gamma delta T cell biology deepened, clinical approaches evolved. Researchers began investigating allogeneic gamma delta T cell therapies, where cells from healthy donors are used to treat cancer patients. This approach offers the potential for off-the-shelf products, addressing some of the manufacturing challenges associated with autologous therapies.

Another significant development in the clinical introduction of gamma delta T cell therapies has been the discovery of genetically modified gamma delta T cells. By engineering these cells to express chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) or T cell receptors (TCRs), researchers aim to enhance their tumor-targeting capabilities and persistence in vivo. Early-phase clinical trials of CAR-modified gamma delta T cells have shown promising results in hematological malignancies and solid tumors. The clinical development of gamma delta T cell therapies has also expanded to explore combination approaches. Studies are investigating the potential synergies between gamma delta T cell therapies and other immunotherapies, such as checkpoint inhibitors, as well as conventional cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation.

On top of this, recent years have seen an acceleration in the clinical testing of gamma delta T cell-based therapies. Multiple biotechnology companies and academic institutions, including In8bio, Kiromic BioPharma, Acepodia Biotech, ImCheck Therapeutics, Adicet Therapeutics, etc., are now conducting clinical trials across various cancer types, including leukemias, lymphomas, and solid tumors such as pancreatic cancer, ovarian cancer, and glioblastoma. These trials are exploring different gamma delta T cell subsets, expansion protocols, and delivery methods to optimize therapeutic efficacy.

One of the key advantages driving the clinical development of gamma delta T cell therapies is their potential for reduced risk of graft-versus-host disease compared to conventional αβ T cell therapies. This characteristic makes them particularly attractive for allogeneic approaches, potentially offering a safer alternative to traditional adoptive T cell therapies. Optimizing gamma delta T cell expansion and persistence in vivo, improving tumor infiltration, and figuring out the best combinations with other treatment modalities continue to be challenges for the field as it develops.

While gamma delta T cell-based immunotherapies are still in relatively early stages of clinical development; with no approved therapy as of June 2024, compared to some other forms of immunotherapy, the unique properties of these cells and the promising results observed in preclinical and early clinical studies have generated significant enthusiasm in cancer care. As more data from ongoing trials become available, gamma delta T cell-based therapies may emerge as a valuable addition to the cancer immunotherapy arsenal, potentially offering new hope for patients with difficult-to-treat malignancies.
