Programmed death-1 receptor ligand (PD-L1) the ligand for PD-1 is a key therapeutic target in the reactivation of the immune response against multiple cancers. Pharmacologic inhibitors of PD-1 have also demonstrated significant anti-tumor activity and are currently under active clinical exploration. avelumab (MSB0010718C; anti-PD-L1 is a fully human anti-PD-L1 igG1 antibody that has shown promising efficacy and an acceptable safety profile in multiple tumor types.
Radiation therapy (RT) is one of the mainstream treatments of cancer therapy along with surgery and chemotherapy, yet RT is the only treatment that does not leave the patients immunocompromised (unlike chemotherapy) and keeps the dying tumor / antigen depot within the host (unlike surgery), providing an opportunity for antigen presentation. Therefore, RT is a rational choice to combine with immunotherapy for cancer treatment.
