ESMO 2017 | Immuno-oncology agents plus tyrosine kinase inhibitors?
Eric Jonasch, MD, from the The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, discusses novel immune-oncology combinations at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) 2017 in Madrid, Spain.

This combination has shown a survival advantage to sunitinib, which is the current standard of care. There is the potential for the standard of care to change, however, the toxicity, and the expense of the combination must first be considered.
