Tumor cell derived danger signals known as DAMPs activate the NLRP3 inflammasome leading to IL-1β/IL-18 production conferring a pro-inflammatory environment. The inflammatory tumor environment enhances the tumor progression and metastasis. The NLRP3 inflammasome or IL-1/IL-18 represents promising therapeutic targets in cancer therapy, which is discussed in this
review. Alternative targets such TLRs and cGAS/STING dependent immune regulators need to be considered. The metabolome and microbiome of the host are additional factors contributing to a successful chemo- and immunotherapy.
