Abstract: Cancer immunotherapy has greatly expanded the therapeutic options against cancer. Recently approved antibody immunotherapies targeting immune-checkpoint molecules expressed on active T cells have shown promise in providing durable clinical anti-tumor responses in a substantial subset of melanoma and lung cancer patients. These clinical successes have prompted renewed efforts to identify efficacious approaches to harness the anti-tumor functions of the immune system. Combination immunotherapy that targets multiple immune-checkpoint molecules and/or combines immunotherapy and chemotherapy will likely lead to improved efficacy and reduced toxicity.
