Jane N. Winter, MD, professor of medicine, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, discusses checkpoint inhibitors for Hodgkin lymphoma.

Checkpoint inhibition might have some toxicity issues, explains Winter. However, the CheckMate-205 trial, presented by Michelle A. Fanale, MD, at the 14th International Conference on Malignant Lymphoma in Lugano, Switzerland, indicated that there has been little to no serious toxicity in the patients who received nivolumab (Opdivo).

Winter is hopeful that these agents for patients with Hodgkin lymphoma will have a low toxicity profile.
