Dr Luis Raez - Medical Director, Memorial Cancer Institute, Miami, Florida, USA

Dr Raez speaks with ecancer at the Best of ASCO meeting in Miami about developments in immunotherapy for treating lung cancer initially presented at ASCO 2017.

Dr Raez last spoke with ecancer at ASCO 2017 to summarise these advances as they emerged.

He highlights the changing options in treating lung cancer over the last year, including approvals of pembrolizumab in advanced lung cancer for combinations and first line therapy, with trials for other checkpoint inhibitors ongoing.

Dr Raez also notes the impact of antibiotics on the lung microbiome impacting radiotherapy efficacy, emerging treatment options dependent on biomarker discoveries, and mechanisms of disease resistance.
