Matthew Galsky, MD, director of the novel therapeutics program and genitourinary medical oncology at the Tisch Cancer Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, discusses combination immunotherapy in the treatment of patients with bladder cancer. Dr. Galsky said that a big question in the platinum-resistant setting of metastatic bladder cancer is the use of combination immunotherapy. Data from other solid tumors such as melanoma, kidney cancer, and lung cancer, have shown that combination immunotherapy might increase response rates compared with single-agent therapy. These responses also tend to be quite durable, explained Dr. Galsky.
