Francis Giles is a professor and chief of the division of hematology/oncology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. He’s been in the field for nearly 30 years and also said that, while radiation and chemotherapy are still most often the best option, patients could one day see more targeted treatments like immuno-oncology. “The reason it’s very exciting is it may be the first page, but we don’t really understand yet how big the book is,” Giles said. “And we don’t yet understand, although we are beginning to … if you tell the immune system wake up, get stronger and while you’re at it, get stronger specifically against this malignancy.”
