Diving Deeper Into Cancer Immunotherapy Biomarkers

|
Phil Stephens, PhD
Chief Scientific Officer

Cancer immunotherapy is transforming the treatment landscape for many types of cancer, but identifying those people most likely to benefit from these new treatments is one of the biggest hurdles facing the field. Personalized targeted therapies have traditionally been prescribed based on the presence of single mutations – but immunotherapy isn’t so simple.

Today, one of the most common biomarkers for immunotherapy is a protein called PD-L1. Unfortunately, while patients with high PD-L1 are more likely to respond to immunotherapy, many with high PD-L1 don’t respond, and many with low PD-L1 do.
