Session Abstract – PMWC 2019 Silicon Valley
Session Synopsis: Due to their potential for severe adverse effects, it is essential to determine at the earliest time possible who is actually benefiting from universal or personalized immunotherapy (predicted via biomarkers like PDL1, MSI and TMB) or whether it needs to be adjusted or stopped. This session will focus on this complementary monitoring strategy.
