Anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibodies

Other names: Anti-programme cell death protein 1 monoclonal antibodies

What are Anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibodies

Programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) is an inhibitory receptor that is expressed on some tumor cells and causes down regulation of the immune system by reducing T-cell activity. Anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibodies block the PD-1 receptor so the T cells are no longer inhibited and therefore activates the immune response against the tumor.

A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.
