Title:
COMBINATION OF CD95/CD95L INHIBITION AND CANCER IMMUNOTHERAPY
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2015/197874
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
The present invention relates to the treatment of cancer using a combination of an inhibitor of the CD95/CD95L signaling system and an immunotherapeutic agent, e.g. a cancer vaccine or a checkpoint inhibitor. Another aspect of the invention is the prognosis of responsiveness of a cancer to the treatment with a combination of a CD95 inhibitor and an immunotherapeutic agent. Further disclosed are preparations and kits for use in these methods.
