Figure 2: Overview of immunosuppressive evasion mechanisms. Tumor cells and tumor-infiltrating Tregs and MDSC can employ a plethora of immunosupressive factors and molecules that impair T-cell function or lead to T-cell anergy and/or apoptosis. Depicted are immunosuppressive self-inhibitory circuits of activated CTLs and also immunosuppressive mechanisms of tumors.
