Anne Chiang, MD, PhD, professor and thoracic oncologist at Yale Cancer Center, discusses ipilimumab (Yervoy) plus nivolumab (Opdivo) in small cell lung cancer (SCLC).

This combination is now included in the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines for this indication, but it not yet FDA approved.

Chiang says that although the lack of approval raises questions as a clinician, the impact of this immunotherapy combination is a tremendous milestone for SCLC.
