Synergy between radiation and chemotherapy enhances melanoma treatment

Dr James Welsh, President, American College of Radiation Oncology, writes: Cancer immunotherapy could represent a truly powerful means of addressing cancer. Although immunotherapy itself is not new, there are new agents and combinations of older agents (including radiotherapy) that could prove more successful than anything we have seen in many years. The data in melanoma thus far is quite encouraging and this preliminary success could possibly extend to many other malignancies as well.
