Tumor Immunogenicity Biomarkers: the Potential of Immunoscore IC® (CD8/PDL1) in Drug Development

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Biomarkers,
  • Thursday, January 25, 2024

The field of immunotherapy has witnessed remarkable advancements in recent years, revolutionizing the way we combat cancer. One of the key factors driving these breakthroughs is the identification and utilization of tumor immunogenicity biomarkers that enable Clinicians to tailor treatments for individual patients. This webinar will showcase the Immunoscore Immune Checkpoint (CD8/PDL1) assay. Experts will provide an in-depth review of the assay’s analytical performance, clinical relevance and efficacy, with a focus on metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

Join this webinar to engage in a dynamic discussion with the featured speakers, addressing key questions, potential challenges and future directions in harnessing Immunoscore IC® for precision immunotherapy.

The Immunoscore IC is available for clinical research. It has not been cleared nor approved by the FDA and is not for use in diagnostic procedures. Immunoscore IC® is a French registered trademark of Veracyte
