Measuring CD8+ T cell tumor infiltration to guide immunotherapy
Studies in mice and in
patient samples suggest measuring CD8+ T cell
infiltration of tumors could help identify patients who will respond to
immunotherapies. In samples from patients with melanoma, CD8+ T cell infiltration correlated with elevated tumor
cell death 1 ligand 1 (CD274
In xenograft mice, CD8+ T cell infiltration led to immune-suppressive Treg
accumulation by driving Treg recruitment and proliferation in the
tumor microenvironment. Next steps include integrating this information into
immunotherapy trials and testing combinations of immunotherapies in
