Recent Advances in Cancer Immunotherapy - Kids Too? - Enduring

The field of cancer immunotherapy is advancing fast and requires frequent updates; application of the principles of cancer immunotherapy from adult to pediatric malignancies is also valuable. Immunotherapy is not curing all malignancies currently and many guiding principles of immunotherapy using various modalities have been evaluated in adult malignancies. Pediatric malignancies are less common and, therefore, a longer time is required before sufficient number of patients have been treated to achieve statistically significant results. Updates regarding the current state of immunotherapy for adult malignancies can inform clinical trial design and patient management for pediatric malignancies.

Target Audience

Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Physicians, Advance Practice Practitioners, staff and research team.

Learning Objectives

  • Demonstrate an understanding of basic concepts of cancer immunotherapy.
  • Identify the settings in which unique approaches can be applied, e.g. intratumoral therapy.
  • Assess the pros and cons of various combination therapies.
  • Describe the gaps in pediatric malignancy immunotherapy.
