PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Despite the efficacy of immune checkpoint blockade (ICB) immunotherapy, most cancer patients still develop progressive disease necessitating additional treatment options. One approach is ligation of the OX40 (CD134) costimulatory receptor which promotes T cell activation, effector function, and the generation of long-lived memory cells.
RECENT FINDINGS: Numerous preclinical studies have demonstrated that OX40 agonists alone or in combination with ICB (e.g., anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, and anti-CTLA-4) augment anti-tumor immunity. In this review, we discuss the impact of OX40 agonists on T cell function and the therapeutic potential of OX40 agonists alone or in conjunction with ICB for patients with advanced malignancies.
