Antitumor therapies targeting programmed cell death-1 (PD-1)/its ligand-1 (PD-L1) are influential at present stage. However, in glioblastoma (GBM), the expression of PD-L1 is variable and the role of anti-PD-1 antibody therapy is still unclear. The high expression of PD-L1 affects cell proliferation and invasion in GBM cells. As COX-2 modulates PD-L1 expression in cancer cells, we tested our hypothesis that a COX-2 inhibitor, celecoxib may play a role on anti-PD-1 antibody treatment via…
