New study (, , ) by Extracellular RNA Communication Consortium () suggests the potential to train immune system to recognize a tumor much the way a vaccine can train immune system to recognize a virus.
scientists discovered that they could cure a mouse of #prostatecancer if they removed the PD-L1 that was leaving the tumor & traveling to the lymph nodes to trick the immune system.” Important: in mice, but interesting observation. #pcsm #ImmunoOnc
Colorectal & prostate cancers have been mostly resistant to immunotherapy drugs, which harness the body's immune system to fight cancer. A new UCSF study could explain how cancer cells dodge the treatment & offer some clues to a solution. via
“[PD-L1 proteins] inhibit the activation of immune cells remotely,” said UCSF’s Robert Blelloch, on how the molecule tricks the immune system in not fighting off colorectal and prostate tumors. #cancer #research
RT : How does prostate cancer escape immunotherapy? Amazing findings from my colleague Robert Blelloch . Cancer’s Trick for Dodging the Immune System
Colorectal and prostate #cancer are among the cancers that don’t seem to react to immunotherapy drugs. A new UCSF study attempts to uncover the tricks of these cancers by the way of a key protein: PD-L1. #research
Provocative paper in exploring the role of secreted PD-L1 in regulating immune response. Highlighted in Need to better understand PD-L1 regulation as we increasingly use it to assign therapy. #cancer #lcsm
