As Prof. Dr. Rolf Stahel, Chair and Prof. Dr. Michael Weller Deputy Chair both Cancer Center Zürich Cancer Center Zürich are writing in their welcome to the partcipants of the First Zurich Immuno-Oncology Symposium Immunotherapy with immune checkpoint inhibitors has become a reality for patients with metastatic melanoma and patients with advanced non-smallcell lung cancer with progressive disease after first line chemotherapy. Available data indicate patients with many other malignant diseases are likely to benefit from this form of therapy. The advent of immunotherapy brings new opportunities, but also new challenges to physicians advising patients and treating patients.
