Not all patients are going to respond to immunotherapy, explains Chiang. Right now, the patient population that has a tumor proportion score of greater than 50% will likely experience a greater benefit with immunotherapy.

For those in the 1% to 49% range, we are not sure what the right answer is, says Chiang. It is important to conduct further clinical trials in that patient population.
