They can produce large quantities of proteins like PD-L1, which “switch off” cells called regulatory T cells (Tregs; pronounced “tee-regs”), in turn tamping down the immune response of other T cells that attack cancer.

UCSF requires the use of Duo Security, a two-factor authentication platform for all faculty, staff, and students when logging into certain online applications and systems including VPN, Outlook Web, Keeper, and Apex. “The liver actually triggers differences in immune cells at distant sites,” Lee said. UCSF Health, which serves as UCSF’s primary academic medical center, includes top-ranked specialty hospitals and other clinical programs, and has affiliations throughout the Bay Area. Email. The second drug, another anti-CTLA-4 compound, targets Tregs directly and depletes their numbers. After that, if using remote.ucsf.edu, you will be directed to a Duo screen where you can select the method that Duo should use to authenticate you.

Though cancer immunotherapy has become a promising standard-of-care treatment – and in some cases, perhaps a cure – for a wide variety of different cancers, it doesn’t work for everyone, and researchers have increasingly turned their attention to understanding why.

If you want a shot at UCSF, I’d say submit it. Compared to mice with secondary cancers implanted in the lung, survival rates were significantly worse in mice with secondary liver cancers after anti-PD-1 treatment: the immune system did not learn to recognize the liver tumor or, notably, the related tumor implanted under the skin. It was a difference in quality,” Lee said. Could a liver tumor change the response of Tregs, and thus other T cells, to a separate, but related, tumor? Finally, the researchers showed that liver tumors change which genes are expressed in Tregs and, through those cells, a host of other immune-system cells as well.
