Expert Video - What types of immunotherapy are used to treat lung cancer?

Medical oncologist Dr. Naomi Fujioka of the University of Minnesota discusses immunotherapy treatment options for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Immunotherapies are used at different stages of NSCLC. They may be part of your first treatment, used later, or used for advanced cancer that has spread. She talks about a class of drugs called immune checkpoint inhibitors that target either PD-L1 or PD-1. You may have an immunotherapy drug alone, in combination with chemotherapy, or combined with different immunotherapies such as CTLA-4 inhibitors.
