Published: Friday, May 05, 2017



Hans J. Hammers, MD, PhD, associate professor, Internal Medicine, UT Southwestern Medical Center, discusses the combination of vaccines and immune checkpoint inhibitors in the treatment of patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC).

It is time to revisit vaccines, Hammers says, particularly in combinations. Approaches to this include allogenic vaccines for easy, over-the-counter use, and tailor-made vaccines to fit the needs of a specific patient.
