Pulmonary metastases are one of the main causes of death for patients with osteosarcoma, Gordon explains. Immunotherapy for osteosarcoma has shown benefits in different aspects. There has been treatment that has been delivered through cytokines, such as interleukin-2, that has particularly been effective.

If you give a patient an antibody against PD-1, a patient can see a therapeutic benefit in osteosarcoma, Gordon states.
