Read the Perspective from Joshua E. Meyer, MD

The combination of ipilimumab and stereotactic body radiotherapy delivered sequentially demonstrated promising response rates and survival in patients with solid tumors and metastatic lung or liver lesions, according to prospective phase 2 study results presented at the American Society for Radiation Oncology Annual Meeting.

“If you have someone with 10 or 20 sites of metastatic disease, you cannot irradiate them all,” James Welsh, MD, associate professor of radiation oncology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, said during a press conference. “So, this work is taking stereotactic body radiotherapy combined with immunotherapy and trying to get responses in other areas where we do not even add radiation.”
