Ezra Cohen, MD, associate director, Moores Cancer Center at the University of California, San Diego, discusses immunotherapy combinations in head and neck cancer.

The future of immunotherapy in head and neck cancer lies in combinations, says Cohen.

With the approved agents pembrolizumab (Keytruda) and nivolumab (Opdivo), as well as durvalumab (Imfinzi) and avelumab (Bavencio)—which have both shown single-agent activity—the question that remains is how these combinations will fit into the standard of care.
