Dr Edward B. Garon - UCLA, Los Angeles, USA

Dr Edward B. Garon talks to ecancer at the 2019 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting about the use of immunotherapy agent pembrolizumab as treatment for advanced non-small cell lung cancer.

He explains that this phase Ib study is an update from the original trial updating the non-small cell lung cancer.

Dr Garon reports that after the 5 year point 15% of patients are alive, particularly those who had a high sustaining for PD-L1 (a quarter of these patients).
