Published: Thursday, Dec 21, 2017



Sagus Sampath, MD, assistant professor, Department of Radiation Oncology, City of Hope, discusses combinations of immunotherapy and radiation for the treatment of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

Radiation is a focused treatment to be directed to a certain area, explains Sampath. Giving radiation to a distant spot while the patient is receiving drug therapy could make the drug work better, Sampath adds. Current research is investigating this strategy to improve the treatment of patients with NSCLC.
