Tumor Mutational Burden as a Biomarker of Immunotherapy Response: An Immunogram Approach in Onco-immunology


Afzal Ansari, Suman Kumar Ray, Mukul Sharma, Rakesh Rawal and Pushpendra Singh*   Pages 1 - 9 ( 9 )


Immune checkpoint inhibitors have revolutionized cancer treatment by allowing T cells to reactivate. Tumor mutational burden (TMB) is a biomarker that has emerged as a viable diagnostic for locating patients who would benefit from immunotherapy in particular cancer types. Greater neo-antigens mean more opportunities for T cell identification, and TMB is clinically linked to better immune checkpoint inhibitors. Tumor foreignness is a cancer immunogram, and TMB can be used as a substitute for foreignness. The role of TMB analysis as an independent predictor of immunotherapy response in the context of immune checkpoint inhibitor medications is the subject of this mini-review.
