In our recent study, we show that tumoral CD73 expression limits the efficacy of anti-PD-1 therapy, and this is rescued by concomitant A2A blockade. Since CD73 is known to be overexpressed in several human cancers and A2A antagonists have undergone clinical trials for Parkinson s Disease, this combination warrants further investigation. ? 2015, Taylor Francis Group, LLC
