How do we help patients who are non-responders or have stable disease respond to checkpoint inhibitors? Will chemotherapy combos help or not?
Predictive biomarkers of response will be key to reimbursement of immunotherapies in Europe. One is potentially emerging for ipilimumab (Yervoy), which may be useful in speeding up access.
What's next in immuno-oncology: what are potential ways to tackle the patients who do not respond to checkpoint immunotherapy?
The science of targeting PD-1 and it's ligand PD-L1 in cancer immunotherapy is highlighted in five Letters published in Nature this week.
How can we jumpstart the immune system to enable more patients to respond? At SITC we learned more about targeting CD40 to achieve this.
At the SITC 2014 annual meeting, Dr van den Brink presented data on how the bacteria in our gut (the intestinal microbiome) can impact GvHD.
At the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) meeting last week, one of the Hot Topic sessions that took place after the conference formally ended was in managing the toxicities associated with chimeric antigen receptor T cell (CAR-T) therapy.
OX40 could be an exciting new target in immune-oncology that could be combined with checkpoint inhibitors to improve the T cell response.
Reflections on Day 1 of the 2014 annual meeting of the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC).
Day 1 of the SITC annual meeting started with two workshops on immunotherapy and combination therapy
This week sees the start of the 2014 annual meeting of the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) at National Harbor, MD.
We’re excited to be attending this meeting for the first time.
