Joshua Bauml, MD, assistant professor, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, discusses immunotherapy in head and neck cancer.

Bauml says that immunotherapy has a key role to play in the treatment of head and neck cancer. The arrival of PD-1 inhibitors, especially for patients with metastatic disease, has brought promise to the treatment landscape.

Specifically, Bauml says, head and neck cancer has overregulation of PD-L1 and PD-L2, as well as being virally mediated, making it an appropriate setting for immunotherapy.
