Immunotherapies in Lung Cancer, Part 2: Dr. Brahmer on Ipilumumab, Anti-PD1, Anticancer Viruses, and Talactoferrin


Here’s the second presentation from our program on “Immunotherapies for Lung Cancer: Can We Deliver on the Promise?”.  Our first part was by Dr. Ramaswamy Govindan from Washington University in St. Louis; he was followed by Dr. Julie Brahmer, from Johns Hopkins University, who covered a wide range of immunotherapy concepts: the anti-CTLA4 antibody ipilimumab, or Yervoy; the exciting new approach of anti-PD1 therapy as was more fully presented at ASCO, new work on anticancer vaccine approaches, and discussion of talactoferrin and the past and ongoing trials with it.  

Below you’ll find the audio and video versions of the podcast, along with transcript and figures.
