ESMO 2021 Expert Video Report on head and neck cancer

Reporting from the ESMO Congress 2021, Paolo Bossi provides an overview of important results related to the potential benefits of immunotherapy in head and neck cancer. First he discusses the results of the GORTEC-REACH trial in locally advanced SCCHN testing avelumab-cetuximab-radiotherapy, and the KEYNOTE-122 study in recurrent or metastatic nasopharyngeal carcinoma testing pembrolizumab.
He then explains the results of a retrospective analysis designed to identify the genomic profile determining the best response to immunotherapy. Among possible reasons for unconclusive results is the need for patients selection based on biomarkers. He also suggests a possible role of maintenance immunotherapy after radiotherapy.
