Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 4th Annual

Combination Immunotherapy

Distinguishing Promising Cancer Immunotherapy Combinations from the Crowd

20-21 March 2019


TTreating cancer patients with an immunological combination is an essential strategy that is still growing in popularity. With so many trials ongoing though, it can all get a bit confusing. There are many factors that may influence therapeutic success, including but not limited to double immunotherapy combinations or immune checkpoint inhibitors combined with conventional cancer therapy. Predictive biomarkers, novel antigens, therapeutic mechanism, reducing toxicity and the immune response are all important considerations. This and more will be discussed in at the Combination Immunotherapy conference.
