Immuno-Oncology (I-O) in the setting of early stages of cancer (ESOC).    

It is our intent to support a comprehensive, innovative, educational initiative that:  

  • Characterizes the mechanisms of action of cancer immunotherapy and discusses the rationale for using I-O as a component of multimodal therapy in earlier stages of cancer.
  • Discusses and integrates emerging I-O clinical trial data into clinical practice in earlier settings across multiple tumor types (Ex: lung, melanoma, bladder, upper GI, etc.).
  • Communicates clinically relevant endpoints in early disease clinical trials and discusses how they may be an indicator of long-term benefit.
  • Identifies appropriate patients with significant recurrence risk and assesses candidacy for I-O therapy based on surgical considerations, relevant biomarkers, and risk-benefit assessment.
  • Assesses safety and adverse effects of I-O in early stages of cancer and its potential implication on surgical outcomes and quality of life.
