Dr Angel Porgador speaks to ecancer at the WIN 2019 Symposium in Paris about using in vitro screening to identify tailored and effective drug combinations for a patient.

Dr Porgador explains the process of using an in vitro method which uses a patient specimen to produce a patient-derived xenograft followed by an ex vivo assay.

He also discusses the issue of immunotherapy with this method in which patient T-cells can be extracted from the blood and later added to the ex vivo assay to ensure a tailored approach.
