Joel Neal, MD, PhD, assistant professor of Medicine (Oncology), Stanford University Medical Center, discusses ongoing trials in immunotherapy for patients with lung cancer.

EGFR inhibitors looking to overcome acquired resistance is a trial that Neal says he is excited to see the results of. At Stanford, there are always patients with EGFR-mutant lung cancer who are looking for new lines of therapy after they have failed on other treatments.

Beyond PD-1/PD-L1 immunotherapy, researchers are looking towards T-cell transgenic therapy trials. Stanford is opening new cellular therapy trials looking to reopen patient’s own T cells to try and combat the cancer in a way that they might not have otherwise.
