Burstein, MD, PhD, a breast oncologist in the Susan F. Smith Center for Women’s Cancers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, recently sat down with other oncologists to break down some of the meeting’s more important findings.
Below, he talks with Elizabeth I. Buchbinder, MD, a melanoma specialist, about some of the research related to pembrolizumab (Keytruda), which was used to treat former President Jimmy Carter, and other immunotherapy news.
