Several months ago I was reading very enthusiastic reports about the Genentech drug attacking PD-L1 expressive tumors which were not rare situations.
I have not heard anything lately, and my oncologist did not even mention that route when discussing possible avenues for my mucosal melanom Braf wild type cancer – I have been in remission for more than a year so it is not a decision that needs to be made now.
Has anyone been following these studies – I have a feeling that the results have not been as encouraging as had been hoped but I can't find anything on the web that confirms this.
