TIM-3, a Possible Target for Immunotherapy in Cancer and Chronic Viral Infections.

Abstract

Effector T-cell responses are controlled by complex mechanisms involving various soluble factors and co-stimulatory and co-inhibitory molecules. These inhibitory receptors act as immune checkpoints and are extensively investigated as possible therapeutic targets, such as PD-1 and CTLA-4. Recently TIM-3 is also gaining prominence in tumor and chronic viral… (More)
