Dr Christy Ralph - St. James's Institute of Oncology, Leeds, UK

Dr Ralph speaks with ecancer at the ACP immunotherapy workshop about the implementation of checkpoint inhibitor therapy for cancer patients.

She notes successes for checkpoint therapy in different disease indications, and considers how clinical data from these may inform development for other diseases where checkpoint inhibitors have yet to improve outcomes.

Dr Ralph also considers the challenges facing the UK approvals agency NICE in managing availability and suitability of expensive drugs for sometimes rare disease or patient subtypes, and the role of doctors in communicating with, and on behalf of, patients when incomplete science enters public awareness.
