Columbia Univeristy Irving Medical Center Newsroom recently sat with cancer immunotherapy expert Pawel Muranski, MD, to discuss the state of cancer immunotherapy and how researchers and physicians should proceed. He says, “Cancer immunotherapy represents a new era in oncology, but we need to continue to do careful clinical evaluations before offering it to new groups of patients.”
