Metastatic cancer patients more likely to survive at academic and high-volume hospitals when given immunotherapy: Study

A new study led by Yale Cancer Center researchers at Yale School of Medicine has revealed a significant increase in patients starting immunotherapy within one month of death. Using a national clinical database, the researchers focused on patients with metastatic melanoma, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and renal cell carcinoma (RCC). They were treated with immune checkpoint inhibitors from the point of FDA approval, through to 2019. The melanoma cohort began treatment in 2012 and the RCC and NSCLC cohorts in 2016.
