Gene Therapy in Patients with Transfusion-Dependent ?-Thalassemia
01/01/70 - The ?-hemoglobinopathies, which include ?-thalassemia and sickle cell disease, are among the most prevalent monogenic disorders worldwide. ?-thalassemia is caused by more than 200 mutations in the HBB globin gene, which encodes the beta subunit of the most common form of adult hemoglobin, HbA.…

Pembrolizumab plus Chemotherapy in Metastatic Non?Small-Cell Lung Cancer
01/01/70 - Inhibitors of programmed death 1 (PD-1) and its ligand PD-L1 are effective therapies for metastatic non?small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) lacking sensitizing EGFR or ALK mutations.

Nivolumab plus Ipilimumab in Lung Cancer with a High Tumor Mutational Burden
01/01/70 - Standard-of-care therapy for previously untreated advanced non?small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) without treatable driver mutations includes platinum-based chemotherapy and pembrolizumab for patients with a high level (?50%) of tumor programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1) expression. There remains a need…

Neoadjuvant PD-1 Blockade in Resectable Lung Cancer
01/01/70 - Antibodies that block the immune inhibitory pathway of programmed death 1 (PD-1) protein have provided a major treatment advance in patients with cancer. In some patients with advanced non?small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), these drugs unleash antitumor immunity, resulting in tumor regression and…

Adjuvant Pembrolizumab versus Placebo in Resected Stage III Melanoma
01/01/70 - The development of effective adjuvant therapies for patients with high-risk melanoma has been preceded by the recent arrival of active agents to treat metastatic melanoma, including ipilimumab (an anti-CTLA4 antibody), pembrolizumab and nivolumab (both monoclonal antibodies against programmed death…
