Originally, a better response to cancer immunotherapy associated with radiation therapy was registered in NSCLC patients. Later, it became apparent that the same effect could be observed in combined treatment of cancers of other sites as well. Jorge Contreras from Hospital Regional Universitario de Málaga, President of the Spanish Society for Cancer Radiology, will be the key speaker to deliver a talk on this topic at the forum. This is what Professor Sergei Novikov, Chair of the Radiation Therapy Department at the Nikolai Petrov National Medical Research Center of Oncology (Saint Petersburg, Russia), shared with us on this topic.

‘A high-level event. I appreciated the opportunity to watch the recorded sessions afterwards, as it was impossible to attend all those events that were held simultaneously. For us, health care specialists from small towns, such events are extremely important. Thanks!'
‘Thanks to all the organizers of the Oncology Forum White Nights. The presentations on drug therapy were particularly engaging. Excellent surgical session! I also joined the session on palliative care, that has become a tradition for me. Over the recent years this is probably the most advanced online conference I have attended. Special thanks to E.N. Namenitov and A.M. Karachun.’
