EXPLORING ADVANCEMENTS IN NOVEL TARGETS, PREDICTIVE BIOMARKERS AND PERSONALIZED MEDICINE

 

One of the key advantages of immuno-oncology is the potential to offer targeted personalized care for patients. However, challenges remain in matching patients to the therapies that offer the greatest chance of success, limiting efficacy depending on individual circumstances and increasing costs. Thus technologies that can assist in guiding therapies are vital – a role filled by predicted biomarker and neoantigen research.

 

This conference will explore the latest research on the tumour mutation burden and its potential for demonstrating the viability of immunotherapeutic treatment, as well as the development of other predictive biomarkers. A dedicated session will also examine the growing potential of neoantigens as novel targets for precision medicine.
