Claire Verschraegen, MD, professor of medical oncology, University of Vermont Cancer Center, discussing combining avelumab (Bavencio) with other immunotherapy agents for patients with lung cancer.

Avelumab is different from pembrolizumab (Keytruda) or nivolumab (Opdivo) because it is a PD-L1 monoclonal antibody. Therefore, combining these agents can potentially create a higher benefit for patients.
