Cancer immunotherapy treatments harness the power of a patient’s own immune system to recognize and destroy cancer cells. The use of this treatment dates back to the late 1800s; however, the science has never before experienced such positive momentum in improving the lives of patients with cancer as in recent years.
As more immunotherapy treatments receive U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for a variety of cancer types, stay connected with SITC for up-to-date resources and education about immunotherapy for cancer treatment.
This may be due to an alternate immune checkpoint, CD200 (OX2) checkpoint blockade. The immuneosuppressive CD200 protein shuts down the immune system through multiple mechanisms (Xiong ...
While I agree with Stephanie's detailed account, simply put checkpoint molecules are a signature of exhausted/ chronically stimulated lymphocytes and therefore serves as a feedback mechanism ...
Hi Stephanie many thanks for your ample reply. It makes sense indeed in order to secure self-antigens. However, is immune system evasion by means of immune checkpoint a matter of quality ...
The expression and regulation of immune checkpoints is an area of active investigation. In answer to your question regarding whether healthy tissues express immune checkpoint ...
