Dr. Schoenfeld on low-dose radiation plus immunotherapy in head and neck cancer

Jonathan D. Schoenfeld, assistant professor of radiation oncology, Harvard Medical School, discusses potential combination regimens of low-dose radiotherapy and immunotherapy to treat patients with head and neck cancer. As these strategies become more targeted, explains Schoenfeld, and as stereotactic body radiation therapy continues to be explored in multiple tumour types and in multiple locations in the body, there are an increasing number of potential combinations that could be evaluated with immuno-oncology agents.
