Exploring Immunotherapies: Beyond Checkpoint Inhibitors
Immunotherapy is an emerging class of cancer treatment, which stimulates the body’s immune system to fight cancer. With the approval of three checkpoint inhibitors (ipilimumab, pembrolizumab and nivolumab) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the past five years, immunotherapies are seen as exciting treatments able to elicit durable cures. In a previous whitepaper, Immunotherapy – Concept Turned Reality , an introduction to the role of the immune system and an overview of checkpoint inhibitors was presented.
In this free webinar, industry experts Edward Ashton, PhD and Polina Voloshko, MD will discuss the growing range of imaging modalities and analysis methods that are available for use in your clinical trials during oncology drug development.
