Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research (LICR), Université Catholique de Louvain, 74 Avenue Hippocrate, 1200 Brussels, Belgium Tryptophan catabolism mediated by indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO1) is an important mechanism of peripheral immune tolerance contributing to tumoral immune resistance, and IDO1 inhibition is an active area of drug development. Recently, the team of Benoit Van den Eynde (LICR, UCL, Belgium) has shown that tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (TDO), an unrelated hepatic enzyme also catalyzing the first step of tryptophan degradation, is also expressed in many tumors and that this expression prevents tumor rejection by locally depleting tryptophan. In this communication, a detailed structure-activity study of a series of 3-(2-(pyridyl)ethenyl)indoles targeting TDO will be presented. This study led to the identification of a very potent, selective and orally available TDO inhibitor (LM10) which, upon systemic treatment, restored the ability of mice to reject TDO-expressing tumors. Our results thus describe a new mechanism of tumoral immune resistance based on TDO expression and establish proof-of-concept for the use of TDO inhibitors in cancer therapy.
