Immune Checkpoints

Immune checkpoints are negative regulators of the immune system that play critical roles in maintaining self-tolerance, preventing autoimmunity and protecting tissues from immune collateral damage. These immune checkpoints are often "hijacked" by tumors to restrain the ability of the immune system to mount an effective anti-tumor response. Blocking immune checkpoints is thus a promising approach for activating anti-tumor immunity
