Tumor Landscapes: β-Catenin Drives Immune Desertification

Immune checkpoint blockade therapy requires a preestablished activated immune landscape. Understanding tumor-intrinsic mechanisms that lead to T-cell desertification is key to resensitizing them to such therapies. The WNT/β-catenin tumor-intrinsic signaling is emerging as an immune exclusion pathway that holds high promise to counteract resistance to immunotherapy.See related article by Luke et al., p. 3074.
