Technologies to quantify the biodistribution of emerging immunotherapeutic cell therapies against cancer can accelerate the timeline to evaluate potential candidates. In this study, we describe the use of in ‘NMR cytometry’ to assay immunotherapeutic cell biodistribution in a mouse model of sub-cutaneous glioblastoma (U87) treated with chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cells. We examine CAR T cell 19F labeling efficiency, phenotype and biodistribution with 19F NMR at day 2 and 7 post infusion to elucidate T-cell tumor homing, survival, and tissue distribution.
