Iovance Biotherapeutics Inc. a commercial biotechnology company focused on innovating, developing, and delivering novel polyclonal tumor infiltrating lymphocyte therapies for patients with cancer, has updated clinical data for lifileucel in combination with pembrolizumab in frontline advanced melanoma, as well as translational data, for the upcoming 2024 ASCO Annual Meeting. 
A study led by UCLA Health Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers found that using a combination of experimental immunotherapy drugs with chemotherapy significantly improves progression-free survival and overall survival for patients with metastatic colorectal cancer who have previously undergone standard chemotherapy treatment when compared to those who received the targeted therapy regorafenib alone. The work will be presented at the 2024 ASCO Annual Meeting.
