Dr. Matthew Gubens is a thoracic oncologist who treats patients with lung cancer, mesothelioma and other thoracic malignancies, including thymoma and thymic carcinoma, which are rare tumors of the mediastinum. He is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCSF.


Recently the doctors sat down to discuss a series of case-based scenarios. In this video, the doctors discuss the standard treatment of chemotherapy and radiation followed by immunotherapy and the approach for a patient with PDL1 score of 0. Would immunotherapy be beneficial?
