EM1910I "Immunotherapy in Lung Cancer Treatment: A New Paradigm Still in Revision" (IM GR-101119)

To discuss changing paradigms in the treatment of advanced lung cancer with immune checkpoint blockade. Antibodies against inhibitory T cell immune check¬points have now become standard of treatment in the first- and second-line therapies for meta¬static lung cancer. We will review the role of T cell immune check points in tumor biology, a brief overview of the clinical data of immune checkpoint inhibitors, attempts to identify predictive bio¬markers, and a discussion of immune related adverse events from T cell checkpoint blockade.
