"There have been revolutionary changes in terms of the use of different modalities of immunotherapy, including checkpoint inhibitors, CAR-T cells and vaccines. These are having major impacts in the treatment of various tumor types. There are also many new "precision" drugs that have been introduced over the past decade. We're seeing an unprecedented acceleration in drug development and enthusiasm is growing that these are going to be game changers in terms of patient outcomes and the ultimate eradication of the disease. And we're just at the beginning of these new modalities of therapy. It's truly a breathtaking time in oncology."
