Dr. Weiss on Immunotherapy Combinations in Head and Neck Cancer

Jared Weiss, MD
Published: Tuesday, Jul 25, 2017



Jared Weiss, MD, assistant professor, UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, discusses immunotherapy combinations in head and neck cancer.

In addition to the approved PD-1 agents, PD-L1 agents will soon be used in the recurrent metastatic setting, says Weiss. Data with combinations of CTLA-4 agents such as ipilimumab (Yervoy) and nivolumab (Opdivo) or durvalumab (Imfinzi) and tremelimumab will be reported in the coming months, as well.

The combination of PD-1 and IDO inhibitors is also showing promise, Weiss says.
