Chicago – after an evening of beer and networking at the unofficial ASCO15 Tweetup, the ASCO annual meeting, like a checkpoint inhibitor combination, releases the break and steps on the gas: the main data presentations start today. It’s “super saturday” at ASCO15.
Yesterday, the press had a preview of some of the cancer immunotherapy data to be presented this morning – we’ve shared our preliminary thoughts on this in yesterday’s ASCO15 Day 1 Cancer Immunotherapy post.
So what’s hot at #ASCO15 today?
We’ll be doing a rolling post throughout the day – when the opportunity presents we’ll provide some topline thoughts on sessions we’ve been to.
If you are here at ASCO, one #ImmunOnc presentation to watch out for this morning is the David A Karnofsky memorial award and lecture being given by Suzanne L. Topalian, MD in the main plenary hall (N Hall B1) at 11am.
From the recent presentations we’ve heard from her at AACR and AAI, her lecture entitled, “PD-1 Pathway Blockade – a Common Denominator for Cancer Therapy” should definitely worth listening to!
