Expression of CD155 differs between tumor and normal tissues, and high expression of this molecule can promote tumor metastasis. Here, we investigate whether CD155 can serve as a target for T cell-mediated immunotherapy of human prostate cancer. We first demonstrate that prostate cancer cells, including PC-3, PC-3 M, and LNCAP cells, express CD155 at high levels. Next, the specific cytotoxic activity of activated T cells (ATCs) armed with a novel anti-CD3 × anti-CD155 bispecific antibody (CD155Bi-Ab) against tumor cells was evaluated by flow cytometry, lactate dehydrogenase assay (LDH), and ELISA. In contrast to unarmed ATCs, an increase in the cytotoxic activity of CD155Bi-armed ATCs against tumor cells was observed at an effector/target (E/T) ratio of 5:1. Moreover, CD155Bi-armed ATCs secreted more IFN-γ, TNF-α, and IL-2 and expressed higher levels of the activation marker CD69 than did unarmed ATCs. As CD155 Bi-Ab enhances the ability of ATCs to kill prostate cancer cells, CD155 is an effective target for cytotoxic T cells in human prostate cancer therapy.
