Immunotherapy has changed the landscape of cancer treatment. Checkpoint blockade therapies unleash breaks in the immune system and induce long-lasting responses. However, a significant number of patients do not respond (innate resistance), and a subset progress after responding (acquired resistance). A better understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying checkpoint blockade therapies will facilitate the design of novel strategies to treat and prevent resistance.
