Event Details: 

With the approval of Provenge and ipilumumab, immunotherapy anti-cancer agents have made major leaps in bettering patient outcomes. However, current strategies in combination immunotherapies looking at the right approaches, sequential treatment, patient monitoring, and surveillance will offer new insights in how specific therapies could be tailored for each individual cancer patient. Dr. Pachynski will discuss CombImmune's research efforts in novel mechanisms in leukocyte trafficking and monitoring of immune specific biomarkers.
