Epitope Spreading and the Efficacy of Immune Checkpoint Inhibition in Cancer

W. Robert Liu, PhD and David E. Fisher, MD, PhD

Article Type: Commentary | First Published: May 28, 2021

Therapeutic antibodies that target immune checkpoints have revolutionized cancer therapy. While these checkpoints restrain T cell activation in response to antigen engagement, checkpoint inhibitors de-repress such tumor-associated T cells, and have generated major clinical responses in multiple tumor types. Nonetheless, the vast majority of cancers remain resistant to this therapeutic approach as currently deployed, either through intrinsic or acquired resistance mechanisms. One key question inv...

Vitale Kyle Castellano, Robert L Jackson, and Michael E Zabala

Article Type: Prospective, Descriptive Study | First Published: May 27, 2021

Neuropathy is a disease which results in the loss of sensation in the extremities.

However, as this assessment is conducted by the clinician’s hand, the true force delivered is unknown. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to model the effects of both insertion depth and monofilament diameter on the contact force and normal stress produc...
