The TUMOR may leverage inherent mechanisms to sustain itself and evade immune destruction.
The STROMA comprises a variety of cell types that may suppress immune function via expression of cell surface or soluble inhibitory molecules, including metabolites.
Immune regulatory cells & APCs
IMMUNE REGULATORY and ANTIGEN PRESENTING CELLS may negatively regulate or not provide necessary stimulation in the immune system.
Through our deep understanding of immunobiology, we have focused on multiple categories of immune mechanisms that can help restore the body’s natural ability to fight cancer.
We’re investigating multiple approaches in each category. As most tumors use more than one immune suppression mechanism or develop new mechanisms over the course of the disease, we continue to investigate how signaling pathways interact and work to identify combination strategies that may activate an effective immune response.
