TLR7 tolerance is independent of the type I IFN pathway and leads to loss of anti-tumor efficacy in mice

Systemic administration of small molecule toll-like receptor (TLR)-7 agonists leads to potent activation of innate immunity and to the generation of anti-tumor immune responses. However, activation of TLRs with small molecule agonists may lead to the induction of TLR tolerance, defined as a state of hyporesponsiveness to subsequent agonism, which may limit… (More)
