In patients with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections, antiviral functions of T cells are impaired; these might be increased by blocking T-cell co-inhibitory pathways, such as preventing interaction between the receptor programmed death (PD)-1 and its ligand, PD-L1.

Abstract

In patients with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections, antiviral functions of T cells are impaired; these might be increased by blocking T-cell co-inhibitory pathways, such as preventing interaction between the receptor programmed death (PD)-1 and its ligand, PD-L1. We attempted to optimize the restoration of T-cell functions in patients with chronic HBV or HCV infection with a combination of reagents that block PD-1 interaction with PD-L1 and stimulate T-cell signaling via CD137, a member of the tumor necrosis factor-receptor family.
