Clinical Pharmacology

CTLA-4 is a negative regulator of T-cell activity. Ipilimumab is a monoclonal antibody that binds to CTLA-4 and blocks the interaction of CTLA-4 with its ligands, CD80/CD86. Blockade of CTLA-4 has been shown to augment T-cell activation and proliferation, including the activation and proliferation of tumor infiltrating T-effector cells. Inhibition of CTLA-4 signaling can also reduce T-regulatory cell function, which may contribute to a general increase in T cell responsiveness, including the anti-tumor immune response.

Non-Clinical Toxicology
None.

Caution is advised if primaquine is used concomitantly with other drugs that prolong the QT interval (see , , and ).

YERVOY can result in severe and fatal immune-mediated reactions .
