At the recent European Cancer Congress in Vienna, one of the Immunotherapy in Cancer Scientific Symposia that caught my attention was on Combining Radiation and Immunotherapy.
When it comes to immuno-oncology, it’s a topic we’ve not heard that much about, although many trials in combination with radiation are planned or in progress.
In the symposium, Dr Sandra Demaria (Weill Cornell Medical College) gave a presentation entitled: “Molecular Basis for Radiotherapy in Synergy with Immunotherapy.”
What are the new concepts on how to combine radiation with immunotherapy?
Dr Demaria shared her thoughts with BSB; excerpts from the interview are included in the following post along with additional commentary.
