Multiorgan Immune-Related Adverse Events During Treatment With Atezolizumab

Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) commonly target CTLA-4, PD-1, and PD-L1, which promote inhibitory signals on immune effector T cells against cancer cells. Although ICIs have improved outcomes in several cancers, their use is also associated with significant adverse events (AEs), including death.

Checkpoint Molecule Could Be New Cancer Immunotherapy Target

  Aug 21 2020 Tagged ICI

A team of researchers at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) have released new data that highlights a potential new target for cancer immunotherapies. The scientists found that the metabolic enzyme IL4I1 (Interleukin-4-Induced-1) promoted the spread of tumor cells and suppressed the immune system.
