David Reardon, MD, clinical director, Center for Neuro-Oncology, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discusses the future of immunotherapy in glioblastoma and how rindopepimut fits into that paradigm. Reardon says rindopepimut is the first immunotherapy to ever show a survival benefit in glioblastoma and hopes a randomized phase III double blind trial with a placebo control arm will allow the drug to make bigger strides in the treatment of the malignancy.

Reardon says the breakthrough of rindopepimut tears down the school of thought that the brain is specifically immuno-privledged and cannot be treated with immunotherapies.
