BACKGROUND Targeting CTLA-4 is a recent strategic approach in cancer control: blocking CTLA-4 enhances an antitumor immunity by promoting T-cell activation and cytotoxic T-lymphocyte proliferation. This induction of a tolerance break against the tumor may be responsible for immune-related adverse events (irAEs). Our objective was to assess the incidence and(More)
Anti-drug antibodies (ADAbs) develop in up to a third of patients treated with biologic agents, with such immunogenicity being one of the main reasons for the loss of efficacy observed in an important proportion of patients treated with such agents. The appearance of ADAbs has consequences in terms of efficacy and tolerance of the biodrug: the development(More)
INTRODUCTION Immunotherapy may be an excellent choice for treating osteosarcoma given its exceptionally high genomic instability, potentially generating neoantigens. In this study, we aim to investigate the HLA class I expression, PD-L1 and tumour-infiltrating lymphocytes in primary osteosarcomas and relapses/metastases, as well as their changes during(More)
Previous studies on high grade sarcomas using mass spectrometry imaging showed proteasome activator complex subunit 1 (PSME1) to be associated with poor survival in soft tissue sarcoma patients. PSME1 is involved in immunoproteasome assembly for generating tumor antigens presented by MHC class I molecules. In this study, we aimed to validate PSME1 as a(More)
Existing analgesics fail to provide adequate pain relief in a significant proportion of patients complaining of chronic pain. Furthermore, their use is limited by tolerability and safety concerns. Thus, there is a huge unmet need for effective and safe innovative painkillers. Considering the major role of nerve growth factor (NGF) in the generation and(More)
