The clinical application of the immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) that target PD-1, PD-L1, and CTLA-4 have shown significant and durable survival increases for a subset of patients with advanced NSCLC. However, the challenge in the usage of ICIs in lung cancer remains in understanding the biology of resistance, including predictive biomarkers beyond PD-L1 expression and the factors controlling either de novo or acquired resistance. The 2023 Hot Topic in Basic and Translational Science: Resistance to IO in NSCLC Conference includes new and emerging data on immunoresistance in NSCLC. Presentations will summarize information about ongoing clinical trials of the newest therapies for lung cancer including data on preclinical and early clinical data.

Session Topics:
  • Epigenetic and Genomics Mechanisms of Resistance
  • TME Contributors to Resistance
  • Host Factors Associated with Resistance
  • The Role of the Tumor Draining Lymph Node in Tumorigenesis and the Role of Tertiary Lymphoid Structures in Immune Resistance
  • Vaccination to (Re)activate the Immune System
  • Cell Therapy and T-Cell Engagers
  • Big Data Discovery of Novel Resistance Mechanisms
  • Resistance to Immune Checkpoint Blockade in the Clinic: Where are we Now?
Live Activity Dates: November 10-12, 2023
Location: Brussels, Belgium
This Meeting is geared towards researchers, clinicians, and students with the goal of expanding knowledge of the benefits of immunotherapy to a broader population of NSCLC patients. 
Upon completion of this activity, the participants should be able to:
  • Understand current and emerging data on immunotherapy resistance in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
  • Leverage mechanisms of immunotherapy resistance in lung cancer for therapeutic use.
Program Co-Chairs:
  • Joachim Aerts, MD, PhD, Netherlands
  • Roberto Ferrara, MD, Italy
  • Kellie Smith, PhD, United States
