Abstract/OtherAbstract:
There is mounting evidence to support the use of a combination of immunotherapy with chemotherapy in the treatment of various types of cancers. However, the mechanism(s), by which these modalities are synergized, are not fully understood. In this review, we discuss several possible mechanisms of the combined effect of immunotherapy and chemotherapy of cancer. We will examine various aspects of this issue such as the combination of different treatment options, the dosage for each arm of treatment, and, more importantly, the timing and sequence of the administration of these treatments.
