- PD-1 is a checkpoint protein on immune cells called T cells
- Normally acts as a type of “off switch” that helps keep the T cells from attacking other cells in the body
- Does this when it attaches to PD-L1, a protein on some normal (and cancer) cells
- When PD-1 binds to PD-L1, it basically tells the T cell to leave the other cell alone
- Some cancer cells have large amounts of PD-L1, which helps them hide from an immune attack.
