Shifting the Balance Between the Immune System and Cancer: Moving Beyond the PD-1/PD-L1 Axis

Access Course

Shifting the Balance Between the Immune System and Cancer: Moving Beyond the PD-1/PD-L1 Axis

 

This activity is intended for hematologists/oncologists, pulmonologists, and pathologists.

 

The goal of this activity is to increase clinicians' understanding of the immune system and avenues of immune modulation beyond the currently available checkpoint inhibitors.

 

 

 

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Have increased knowledge regarding the unmet medical need in patients with cancer whose disease does not respond to or becomes resistant to programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1)/programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) and/or cytotoxic T-lymphocyte antigen-4 (CTLA-4) inhibition

  • Have increased knowledge regarding the avenues of immune modulation beyond PD-1/PD-L1 and CTLA-4 inhibition to improve immune recognition of cancer cells and tumors

  • Have increased knowledge regarding the mid-to-late stage clinical trial data on the use of novel strategies to modulate the immune system to treat patients with cancer
