3 Cancer immunologyThe treatment of cancer by harnessing immune responses has long been pursued.To turn on the immune system against cancers have led to anecdotal successes:Tumor vaccines.Immune-stimulating cytokines such as interferons and interleukins.Intratumor injections of bacterial products to induce local inflammation and recruit an antitumor immune response.Ex vivo:Dendritic cells.Adoptive transfer: LAK ACT.

7 Tumor escape of immunesurveyance Theoretical reasons for failure of immune system to prevent cancer outgrowthFailure to activate specific T cells:Inadequate antigen processing/presentation.Insufficient T-cell repertoire.Available T cells below activation threshold set point.Ineffective T-cell differentiation into effector cells.Lack of homing of primed T cells to tumor sites.Immunosuppression in tumor microenvironment:CTLA-4 on T cells (inhibitory receptor).PD-1 on T cells (binds PD-L1 on tumor cells).T-cell anergy (deficient B7 costimulation).CD4+CD25+FoxP3+ Tregs (extrinsic suppression).Indoleamine-2,3-dioxygenase (IDO tryptophan catabolism).Unbalance of cytokines.Tumor escape of immunesurveyanceGajewski, et al. 2007; Zou

13 Induced expression of PD-L1 (B7-H1) on melanoma cells by infiltrating T cells Induction of the B7-H1/PD-1 pathway may represent an adaptive immune resistance mechanism exerted by tumor cells in response to endogenous antitumor activity and may explain how melanomas escape immune destruction despite endogenous antitumor immune responses.
14 Redundancy of inhibitory receptors (iRs) Heterogeneous group of membrane proteins that transmit inhibitory signals into the cell upon binding to their respective ligands:The CD28 family.PD-1, CTLA-4 and BTLA.The killer cell lectin-like (KLR) family.KLRG1.The T cell immunoglobulin.2B4, LAG3 and CD160.Mucin domain (TIM) family.TIM-3.

19 Programmed death ligand 2 in cancer-induced immune suppression PD-L1 is expressed on many different cells.PD-L2 is expressed exclusively on DCs and monocytes.PD-1/PD-L1 interactions have been shown to play a substantial role in regulating autoreactive T cells.PD-L2 has been shown to be critically involved in regulating immune responses to environmental antigens.

22 CytokinesT-cell stimulatory cytokines has been a goal of translational immunologists since the discovery of IL-2 in the 1980s.In contrast to the successes obtained in murine models in which cytokine administration can lead to the complete eradication of bulky disease, the results of human clinical trials have been more modest: High-dose IL-2 therapy leads to significant tumor shrinkage in about 15% of patients with stage IV melanoma or renal cell cancer.The immune system is populated with inhibitory mechanisms that act to brake the specific immune response:Deactivators of cytokine signal transduction (e.g., suppressor of cytokine signaling proteins).Cell-to-cell inter-actions involving the binding of ligands on antigen-present-ing cells to t-cell inhibitory receptors (PD-1 and CTLA-4).Distinct cellular compartments that have potent immune-suppressive properties (regulatory T cells and mye-loid-derived suppressor cells; refs. 3–6).

27 That’s not all, folks!! The other two main stumbling blocks for anticancer therapy Mechanisms of tumor cells:Antigen loss.Production and release of immunosuppressive factors.Antiapoptotic molecules.Factors in the tumor microenvironment:Regulatory T cells (Tregs).Tolerogenic DCs.Tumor associated macrophages (M2).Myeloid-derived suppressor cells.Cancer-associated fibroblasts.
28 Challenges and future directions I Improved understanding of the interaction between the tumor and the host immune system will result in advances in clinical care.An extensive and redundant types of inhibitory:Receptors.Proteins secreted or in cytoplasm.Cells.The cellular and molecular circuitries underlying the induction of adaptive immunity by mAbs remain poorly understood:relate to the Fc receptor:some cancer cell types express functional Fc receptors (buffering).the genes coding for human Fc receptors are very heterogeneous and all of them present multiple polymorphisms.
29 Challenges and future directions I Selection of patients may be expected to be the best candidates for therapy. Predictive markers.Monitoring of immunological parameters of patients undergoing therapy.We need immunologic biomarkers of prognosis.Future efforts should include the rational combination of checkpoint inhibitors with targeted therapies, other immune agents or chemotherapy.

31 DebateEstamos de acuerdo en la necesidad de conocer mejor como se destruyen las células tumorales y qué nuevos infiltrados inmunológicos se dan tras las terapias inmunes antitumorales. Nos lleva a establecer nuevos criterios objetivos de respuesta al tratamiento más allá de RECIST.Creemos adecuado poder seleccionar a los pacientes para poder administrar los fármacos a los mejores candidatos, los únicos capaces de responder a esta targeted therapy. ¿Cambiará eso las tasas de respuesta y supervivencias?¿Por dónde buscar los marcadores de respuesta predictivos para las terapias inmunológicas?¿Serán necesarias las combinaciones de diversos tratamientos targeted de índole inmunológica? ¿Asociados a la quimioterapia?
