2019 Refresher-Radiation and Immune Therapy
This session will help radiation oncology professionals remain current in the field of immunotherapies and radiation combined with immunotherapies. Attendees need to be able to recognize and identify side effect profiles and presenting symptoms of toxicities from immunotherapies which are used clinically. Novel tumor vaccines that use conventional and exploratory cancer therapies will be discussed.
The activity is designed to meet the interests of radiation oncologists, radiation oncology residents, radiation physicists, nurses, radiation therapists, and radiation dosimetrists.
- Describe the mechanisms and potential utility of radiation-mediated in situ vaccines.
- Discuss the importance of clinical trials in studying immune-oncology therapies and how such trials might be designed.
