Immunoscore® CR CD3 & CD8

Apply Immunoscoring power to all cancer indications

Immunoscore® CR is a flexible service solution allowing to investigate the prognostic and predictive performance of accurate quantification of immune cells density in a variety of cancer types.

  • This assay measures the density of CD8+ cytotoxic T cells and CD3+ T cells of resected or biopsied cancer samples
  • It is performed on consecutive FFPE tissue slides
Immunoscore® has been developed and adapted from the sophisticated algorithm of the Immunoscore® Colon cancer IVD solution please visit www.immunoscore-colon.com

Scientific background

Tumors consist of a mixture of neoplastic epithelial cells, endothelial cells, fibroblasts, myofibroblasts, and immune cells, which collectively form the tumor microenvironment. The association of immune cell infiltrates with prognosis, in various types of cancer, has been demonstrated in a large number of publications (see Nature Reviews Cancer 2012, Fridman et al.). The complex interplay between these cells including the type, density, location and immune functions, is implicated in disease progression, metastasis, and drug response/resistance and form the paradigm of the immune contexture (Galon J et al.  Science 2006).
