Abstract: Tregs play a crucial role in glioma-mediated immunosuppression; hence, tackling the Treg population in patients with malignant glioma could improve the clinical success rate of antiglioma immunotherapy. Therefore, it is of high importance to elucidate the mechanisms responsible for Treg recruitment and retention within the glioma microenvironment. The current paper demonstrates that, in addition to preferential chemoattraction, glioma-derived soluble factors can also induce preferential Treg proliferation and survival. These data identify new targets for Treg modulating strategies.
