Synergistic Effect of Immunotherapy and Chemotherapy in Cancers: Perspective in High Grade Glioma Treatment

Author(s): Guillermo R. DeAngulo, Wei Sun, Amy B. Heimberger.

Abstract:

Chemotherapy and immunotherapy are two distinct approaches for the treatment for high-grade gliomas. Used independently, neither is curative. However, if the appropriate chemotherapeutic agent is selected and its administration is timed in conjunction with immunotherapy, a potent synergistic effect may occur, resulting in a more favorable outcome.
