Immunization against a genetically engineered tumor-specific antigen, ovalbumin, when adjuvanted with Diprovocim, inhibited growth of B16 melanoma and prolonged survival in the presence of immune checkpoint blockade by anti–PD-L1; 100% of mice responded to treatment. Our data suggest Diprovocim boosts the success of anti–PD-L1 treatment by increasing the number and activation of tumor-specific CTLs capable of responding to this checkpoint inhibitor.


This sounds like good news for Melanoma, these are existing compounds


I found this portion interesting:

We report the immunological effects of the synthetic chemical adjuvant Diprovocim, which targets the innate immune receptor TLR1/TLR2 in mice and humans.


Some research indicates that TLR2 is upregulated in senescene process, so perhaps combing senolytics with Diprovocim would increase effectiveness.

I don't know about the theory, but I can find virtually no reference to Diprovocim anywhere except in relation to this study. It was developed just last year by the same team that published this melanoma study. I assume it will take years to come to market (if ever) and will be very expensive.

Found the filing. Its by Scripps:



you are right this may take a long time to get to market. It is possible to buy it today however as research chemical, but risky. I guess I should do a search for other tlr agonists.
