Dr Gilberto Lopes - Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, Miami, USA

Dr Lopes speaks with ecancer at the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting about results from a trial that show front line pembrolizumab surpassed chemotherapy for lung cancer patients whose tumours had PD-L1 expression and no EGFR/ALK rearrangements.

For more on these results, watch Dr Lopes present the data in a press conference here and read news coverage here.
