  • Solid tumors are typically more acidic than surrounding normal tissue 
  • This acidity activates GPR65 on macrophages, causing a suppression pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines  
  • Small molecule GPR65 inhibitors counteract this effect and reduce tumor growth in vivo through an increase in the infiltration of key effector cells
