About extracellular Trx1
Plasma levels of Trx1 is elevated in patients with lung, breast, colorectal, pancreatic, hepatocellular, gastric, myeloma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma and acute lymphatic lymphocytic leukemia. Trx1 is believed to be a survival factor and chemoattractant to Tregs in tumor microenvironment (TME) resulting in inhibition of cytotoxic T cells and NK cells. By neutralizing Trx1 in TME, an aTRX mAb is hypothesized to reduce Treg and other suppressive cells and activate T effector cells, thereby resulting in anti-tumor immune response and reduction in formation of pre-metastatic niche.
