Indeed, it is our opinion that cancer immunotherapy is approaching a watershed moment where it transitions from … Recent studies controlled for lead-time bias reported conflicting data: a large monocentric study including different cancer types presented at ESMO 2018 did not find a correlation between IrAEs and response to checkpoint blockade after controlling for lead-time bias [67]. Results of currently ongoing studies on checkpoint blockade will most likely expand the use of CPIs to additional patient populations (e.g. Tran E, Robbins PF, Lu YC, Prickett TD, Gartner JJ, Jia L, et al. Some target a particular part of the cancer cell others use the immune system to kill cancer cells. 2007 Mar-Apr;41(2):355-68. Hato SV, Khong A, de Vries IJ, Lesterhuis WJ. J Immunother Cancer. Yet, another recent study in renal cell carcinoma reported better efficacy of nivolumab in patients with IrAEs after controlling for lead-time bias [68]. Gandhi L, Rodríguez-Abreu D, Gadgeel S, Esteban E, Felip E, De Angelis F, et al. Current studies show the efficacy of CPIs in patients with malignant melanoma (MM), NSCLC or neoplasms with mutational defects in DNA mismatch repair proteins (micro satellite instability or MSI) independent of the actual tumor entity. Intriguingly, all of these tumors share a relatively high mutational load when their genetic characteristics are comparatively analyzed [43].
