Julia Rotow, MD, on Patient Selection in Treating Thoracic Cancers: Looking to Driver Mutations and Biomarkers

Julia Rotow, MD, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discusses an education session she conducted at the 2021 Multidisciplinary Thoracic Cancers Symposium on mutations and biomarkers in thoracic cancers, including PD-L1, a continuous variable, with the greatest benefit to treatment being associated with very high levels of PD-L1 tissue polypeptide-specific antigen. Dr. Rotow also discusses STK11 mutations, which may be associated with reduced benefit to immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy, though further study is needed.
