Antiestrogens induce immunosuppression: Tamoxifen and Fulvestrant lead to TGFß-mediated immunosuppression in breast cancer

Antiestrogens (AE) like tamoxifen belong to the most typically utilized medicines in the treatment of estrogen receptor good breast cancer. Nevertheless, relapses regularly arise for the duration of therapy indicating growth of drug resistance. Regarding the underlying mechanisms, the obtaining of AE induced TGFß in breast cancer cells seems to be relevant both with respect to TGFß?s cell autonomous function as a mediator of cancer progression and its function as an immune regulator. To investigate the prospective position of tumor derived, AE induced TGFß as a suppressor of the host?s immune response, heterologous and autologous in vitro assays have been established in this function. Application of AE led to an impaired antitumor immune response, which could be restored by a neutralizing TGFß antibody. The work at hand thus supplies proof for an AE treatment induced, TGFß driven immunosuppression in the tumor microenvironment, a mechanism that could critically contribute to deve
