OX40 is a protein receptor found on the surface of T cells, a type of white blood cell that plays a crucial role in the immune system. When activated, OX40 promotes the proliferation and survival of T cells, leading to a stronger immune response against cancer cells and infectious agents. OX40 agonists, which are drugs that activate OX40, have shown promising results in preclinical and clinical studies as a potential immunotherapy for cancer. They can enhance the efficacy of other cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and checkpoint inhibitors, and may also have applications in autoimmune diseases and allergies.
