James Patrick Allison, Dana R Leach, Matthew F Krummel: Blockade of T lymphocyte down-regulation associated with CTLA-4 signaling. The Regents of the University of California Office of Technology Transfer, Richard F Trecartin, Todd A Flehr Hohbach Test Albritton & Herbert Lorenz, April 18, 2000: US06051227 (56 worldwide citation)

T cell activation in response to antigen is increased by the administration of binding agents that block CTLA-4 signaling. When CTLA-4 signaling is thus blocked, the T cell response to antigen is released from inhibition. Such an enhanced response is useful for the treatment of tumors, chronic viral ...
