The Future Is Now: The Evolution of Immunotherapy in Cancer

Sunday, June 5, 2016
Sheraton Grand Chicago Chicago, Illinois

Presented by prIME Oncology in collaboration with the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer

This satellite symposium, which was held during the 2016 ASCO Annual Meeting, examined the role of the immune system in cancer, the rationale for immunotherapy as a treatment for solid tumors, and the results from ongoing clinical trials of immunotherapies in various solid tumors. Attendees learned about the identification and management of treatment-related adverse events in patients receiving immunotherapy and about appropriate clinical trials of immunotherapies for patients with solid tumors.
