Anti-CD137 Suppresses Tumor Growth by Blocking Reverse Signaling by CD137 Ligand.

Sang W Kang, Sang C Lee, So H Park, Juyang Kim, Hyeon H Kim, Hyeon-Woo Lee, Su K Seo, Byoung S Kwon, Hong R Cho, Byungsuk Kwon,

CD137 (4-1BB) is a T-cell costimulatory molecule, and agonstic CD137 antibodies are currently being evaluated in the clinic as cancer immunotherapy. Recently, it was found that CD137<sup>-/-</sup> mice or mice injected with agonistic anti-CD137 antibodies exhibit heightened antitumor responses, contrary to expectations based on other knowledge of CD137 function. Here, ... Read more >>
