Immuno-Oncology Overview

Nov 23, 2015, 14:21 ET from Reportlinker

NEW YORK, Nov. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- This is an overview of the field of immuno-oncology and the various immuno-oncology classes Immuno-oncology is one of the most promising and fastest growing areas of cancer research, as well as one of the most active areas in terms of licensing deals and acquisitions


Datamonitor Healthcare anticipates that the PD-1/PD-L1 class will gain approvals for multiple tumor types, and that this class will be the most commercially successful immuno-oncology class over the next 10 years As monotherapies, PD-1 inhibitors will become the first-line treatment of choice in melanoma, and they are also likely to gain further approvals for a wide variety of cancers

CAR-T cell therapy early clinical results are extremely promising The leading CD19-targeted CAR-T treatments from Novartis, Juno, and Kite all provide response rates hovering around 90% for patients with multiply relapsed or refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia

Expectations for cancer vaccines have diminished after multiple failures In theory, a cancer vaccine treatment should be able to strengthen the immune response against a cancer and help to prevent it from recurring In practice, a series of Phase III studies investigating cancer vaccines have failed to meet their primary endpoints, and the potential future role of this class has diminished with each trial failure
