Prasad S. Adusumilli, MD, on Solid Tumors: CAR T Cells and Immune Checkpoint Blockade
2017 ASCO-SITC Clinical Immuno-Oncology Symposium
Prasad S. Adusumilli, MD, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses a way to promote functional persistence of CAR T cells as an ideal strategy for solid tumor immunotherapy.
Elizabeth Ann Mittendorf, MD, PhD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses some of the top papers presented at the ASCO-SITC Symposium and how these presentations will affect clinical practice.
Stephen Gottschalk, MD, of Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital, discusses combining CAR T cells with checkpoint blockade or targeted treatments to improve their antitumor activity in solid tumors.
Roy S. Herbst, MD, PhD, of the Yale Cancer Center, discusses immunotherapy as a standard of care in lung cancer, critical biomarkers, and scientifically guided combination treatment, which will be the future of lung cancer immunotherapy.
Limo Chen, PhD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses co-inhibition of CD38 and PD-L1, which leads to improved antitumor immune response, reducing tumor growth and metastasis. (Abstract 79)
Shridar Ganesan, MD, PhD, of the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, discusses mutation burden as a biomarker of response to immune checkpoint therapy in nine solid cancers.
