Meeting Description:

The field of cancer immunotherapy is progressing rapidly as several new agents were FDA approved in 2016. Most exciting are so-called checkpoint inhibitors that “take the brakes off” the immune response, enabling a stronger immune attack against cancer. However, despite their demonstrated benefits, these therapies are effective in only 20-40% of patients. Efficacy may be improved for patients with a baseline immune response prior to treatment, potentially elicited by focused ultrasound. The Foundation has partnered with the Cancer Research Institute (CRI) to help advance the timely development of FUS and immunotherapy combination treatments to improve outcomes and quality of life for cancer patients.
