ⓘ Immune checkpoint

Immune checkpoints are regulators of the immune system. These pathways are crucial for self-tolerance, which prevents the immune system from attacking cells indiscriminately. However, some cancers can protect themselves from attack by stimulating immune checkpoint targets.

The inhibitor molecules are checkpoint targets for cancer Immunotherapy because of their potential for use in several types of cancer. Currently approved checkpoint inhibitors to block the CTLA4 and PD-1 and PD-L1. For the relevant basic scientific discoveries, James P. Allison and Tasuku Honjo won the Tang prize in pharmaceutical science and the Nobel prize in physiology and medicine in 2018.
