We here describe the development of a novel ELISPOT assay for the detection and enumeration of IFNγ-secreting functional chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-redirected T cells against carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA). This method is valuable for clinical trials to monitor the presence of functional CEA-specific T cells transduced with a CAR. The same principle should be applicable for the detection of functional CAR-redirected T cells against any other tumour-associated antigens by immobilizing a particular biotinylated antigen to streptavidin-coated beads.
