UKOF 2018 | Immunotherapy in common solid tumors: an overview

Much of the focus for immunotherapy research is on the cancers for which it works best, such as Hodgkin lymphoma and lung cancer. Elaine Vickers, BMedSc, PhD, from Science Communicated Ltd, Manchester, UK, gave a talk at the UK Oncology Forum (OF) 2018, held in Liverpool, UK, about the current state of immunotherapy research in certain cancer types that are often overlooked in this area: bowel, breast and prostate cancer. In this video, Dr Vickers gives an overview of this talk, discussing current immunotherapy options for these common solid tumor types, and suggesting avenues for future research.
