Abstract Text Immune stimulation has emerged as a promising approach to the treatment of neoplastic diseases. Currently approved therapeutics, such as anti-CTLA4 and anti-PD1, are primarily aimed at blocking inhibitory signaling by immune cells. An alternative and potentially synergistic approach would involve activation of immune pathways by agonism of stimulatory receptors, such as CD40. Agonistic antibodies, while promising in principle, have encountered significant barriers in clinical trials limited by the systemic toxicity of such approaches. Using a mouse model humanized for both Fc receptors and CD40, we previously demonstrated enhanced antitumor activity with an Fc-modified antibody. We now demonstrate that this model recapitulates the platelet and hepatic toxicities seen with anti-CD40 antibodies in patients, providing a predictive measure of the dose-limiting activity of this approach. We further show that such toxicity can be circumvented and durable systemic antitumor immunity achieved by intratumoral delivery of an Fc-engineered anti-CD40 agonistic antibody.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.
