Radiation and Immune Therapy-ARC2019
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.
This activity is available from May 08, 2019, through 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on May 07, 2022.
