Mechanisms involved in synergistic anticancer immunity of anti-4-1BB and anti-CD4 therapy.


Anti-4-1BB-mediated anticancer effects were potentiated by depletion of CD4+ cells in B16F10 melanoma-bearing C57BL/6 mice. Anti-4-1BB induced the expansion and differentiation of polyclonal tumor-specific CD8+ T cells into IFN-gamma-producing CD11c+CD8+ T cells. The CD4+ cell depletion was responsible for facilitating immune cell infiltration into tumor… (More)
