Challenges in Immuno-oncology (I-O): Future Use, Trial Design and Combination Strategies

Challenges in Immuno-oncology (I-O): Future Use, Trial Design and Combination Strategies


Immuno-oncology (I-O) is the treatment of cancer with immunotherapy, by using therapies to stimulate or suppress the body’s own immune system to fight cancer. Several distinct modalities of immunotherapy exist, including cytokines, vaccines, viruses, adoptive cell transfer, and checkpoint blockade using monoclonal antibodies.

This report provides an assessment of the current status and future challenges of immuno-oncology across many indications. Overall, GlobalData expects innovative trial design and new combination drug approvals to drive immuno-oncology market growth.
