  • AACR 2018 Pembro Plus Chemo: Practice-Changing for mNSCLC Adding pembrolizumab to chemotherapy provided significant improvement in both overall and progression-free survival; the results have been hailed as practice-changing.
  • AACR 2018 Successful CAR T-Cell Tx Needs Good T Cells to Begin With Starting with poor-quality T cells may be a key problem in the manufacturing of effective and functional CAR T cells, which may explain why it has been difficult to apply this approach to all cancers.
  • AACR 2018 Improving Diversification of Cancer Patients in Clinical Trials Underserved populations experiencing cancer health disparities are underrepresented in clinical trials (CTs). AACR is taking the lead on fixing this disparity with its '2020 by 2020' initiative.
