The Role of Tumor Mutational Burden in Lung CancerVideo Categories: PMO Interview with the Innovator Series: Volume 12 and Video Library
Drs. Goeffrey Oxnard and Lauren Ritterhouse discuss the need for validation and standardization of Tumor Mutational Burden to make it a robust biomarker, in conjunction with PD-L1, in selecting immunotherapy for their lung cancer patients.
Dr. Mauro addresses the debate over selecting first line therapy with three approved agents available.
Biomarker Data in Melanoma Presented at ASCO 2018 Are Largely Extensions of Previous Studies Rather Than New Discoveries
Dr Sanjiv Agarwala argues that much of the biomarker data in melanoma presented at ASCO 2018 are around the value of PD-L1 testing; however, even PD-L1–negative melanoma patients seem to respond to anti–PD-1 therapy, although some studies suggest PD-L1–negative patients may be better candidates for combination immunotherapy.
