The prospect of tumor sensitization to these treatments is therefore an attractive one. Results: We describe the case of a patient who developed a sustained response to trametinib and pembrolizumab, despite prior resistance to both these therapies, after receiving treatment with a CDK4/6 inhibitor. Discussion: We further outline the preclinical data supporting a possible role for the use of CDK4/6 inhibitors in tumor sensitization to immunotherapy.
