Clin Cancer Res. Deleterious effect of baseline steroids on efficacy of PD-(L)1 blockade in patients with NSCLC. Advances in Cancer Immunotherapy Charles Drake, MD, PhD , associate director for clinical research at the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center , was a featured speaker at the 2018 annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) , a prominent conference that brought together worldwide experts in oncology and cancer research. Pembrolizumab was the first drug that was FDA-approved with a “tumor-agnostic” indication based on findings from five different clinical trials including 15 tumor entities with MSI/dMMR tumors (KEYNOTE -012, − 016, − 028, − 158 and − 164). Gobert A, Veyri M, Lavolé A, Montaudié H, Cloarec N, Doucet L, et al. Tran E, Turcotte S, Gros A, Robbins PF, Lu YC, Dudley ME, et al. PubMed In this regard, it is important to note, that the combination of two immunomodulatory drugs can also have antagonistic instead of synergistic effects . 2017;377(26):2531–44. While the mentioned results are reassuring regarding saftey of CAR T cell therapy, different strategies are currently under investigation to further improve the safety profile of CAR T cells. Disruption of this axis by blocking monoclonal antibodies can induce durable remissions in different cancer types and has led to numerous FDA and EMA approvals, among others, for the treatment of melanoma, lung cancer, urothelial cancer, head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), renal cell cancer (RCC) and Hodgkin’s disease . The promising results were recently presented at the annual meeting of the AACR (2019), making this combinational strategy one to keep track of in the years to come [28,29,30]. J Clin Oncol. A phase II randomized trial of nivolumab with stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) versus nivolumab alone in metastatic (M1) head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Systemic clinical tumor regressions and potentiation of PD1 blockade with in situ vaccination. Epub 2006 Nov 13. Considering the latter group (relapse after an initial complete response), it is important to explore further treatment options for these patients. Cancer discovery. Immunotherapy with Dendritic Cells Modified with Tumor-Associated Antigen Gene Demonstrates Enhanced Antitumor Effect Against Lung Cancer. 1b) are investigating CAR T cell therapies for different hematological and solid cancer types . Article Ghosh D, Venkataramani P, Nandi S, Bhattacharjee S. Cancer Cell Int. The two main drivers behind this success are checkpoint inhibitors (CPIs) and chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells. 1a). 2018;7(8):e1452581. The high potential of this approach was recently confirmed in melanoma patients after failure of PD-1 / PD-L1 blockade  and is currently investigated in a phase III trial as first-line treatment for advanced melanoma patients (NCT02278887).
