Safety of combining radiotherapy with immune-checkpoint inhibition    pp477 - 494
William L. Hwang, Luke R. G. Pike, Trevor J. Royce, Brandon A. Mahal & Jay S. Loeffler

The combination of radiotherapy and immune-checkpoint inhibition (ICI) has generated considerable excitement among oncologists, and numerous clinical trials are currently exploring the efficacy of this approach; however, the safety and tolerability of this combination remains incompletely understood. In this Review, the authors describe the available data on safety considerations in patients receiving radiotherapy in combination with ICI.


Treatment resistance in urothelial carcinoma: an evolutionary perspective    pp495 - 509
Panagiotis J. Vlachostergios & Bishoy M. Faltas

Patients with advanced-stage urothelial carcinoma typically receive chemotherapy and might also receive immune-checkpoint inhibitorsfollowing disease progression. However, the majority of patients will ultimately develop resistance to treatment. In this Review, the authors describe the evolutionary mechanisms of treatment resistance in patients with urothelial carcinoma.


Evolution of CLL treatment — from chemoimmunotherapy to targeted and individualized therapy    pp510 - 527
Jan A. Burger & Susan O'Brien

In recent years, a number of novel agents have been added to the therapeutic armamentarium for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). Herein, Jan A. Burger and Susan O'Brien outline the emerging paradigm of individualized therapy for patients with CLL aimed at exploiting the advantages of these novel agents but also integrating traditional therapies for selected patients.
