In end-stage cancer patients, metronomic (low dose, daily) dosing of cyclophosphamide was shown to decrease Treg numbers and suppressive function [127]. Similar effects of metronomic cyclophosphamide have been observed in the blood of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma, wherein alpha fetoprotein (AFP)-specific CD4 T-cell responses also increased [128]. In patients with solid tumors, cyclophosphamide decreased Treg populations and did not impair CD8 T-cell responses to an oncolytic adenovirus [129].
