What's the role of immune checkpoint inhibitors?

Immune checkpoints are proteins in the immune system that either turn up a signal or turn down a signal. These proteins help keep immune responses in check and can keep T cells from killing cancer cells. When these proteins are blocked, the “brakes” on the immune system are released and T cells are able to kill cancer cells better.
