Immunotherapy in MSS Colorectal Cancer: Dr. Fakih

Doc Talks

Dr. Marwan Fakih of the City of Hope Cancer Center takes a deep look at immunotherapy for MSS CRC in this Doc Talk, recorded in January 2022 with PALTOWN Scientific Director Dr. Manju George. Dr. Fakih discusses a number of recent clinical trials in this video conversation.
