Abstract

Radiotherapy and immune checkpoint blockade are effective treatments for melanoma. Recent preclinical studies have suggested an interaction of radiotherapy and immune checkpoint blockade. Retrospective clinical studies, as well as a small number of prospective studies, have been undertaken to explore this interaction in patients with melanoma. In this review, we present the results of clinical studies combining radiotherapy and immune checkpoint blockade and conclude that this is a promising strategy worth of further investigation.
