In this episode, an expert medical oncology panel led by John L. Marshall, MD, with Jamie E. Chaft, MD, and Scot Niglio, MD, provides a brief overview on the revolutionary changes brought by immuno-oncology to the management of gastrointestinal, thoracic, and genitourinary cancers. Then, the panel answers clinician questions on important topics such as:

  • Selecting immuno-oncology vs targeted therapy in MSI-high cancers with co-occurring alterations (eg, BRCA, HER2, BRAF, NTRK)
  • Switching to a new immuno-oncology strategy at progression on first-line immune checkpoint inhibition
  • Neoadjuvant treatment with immune checkpoint inhibitors
  • Financial considerations when selecting chemotherapy vs immuno-oncology
