Vanderbilt biostatisticians launch Cancer-Immu data portal for predicting response to immune checkpoint blockade immunotherapy

A new data portal called Cancer-Immu established by a team of Vanderbilt University Medical Center biostatisticians can help cancer clinicians and researchers predict which patients will respond to immune checkpoint inhibitors.

Prediction models for breast cancer

Vanderbilt researchers developed new prognostic models for breast cancer outcomes and found that adding postdiagnostic weight change as a factor improves the prediction.

Method proposed to correct misinterpretations of long-term survival rates for immunotherapies

Immune checkpoint inhibitors have transformed cancer care to the point where the popular Cox proportional-hazards model provides misleading estimates of the treatment effect, according to a new study published April 15 in JAMA Oncology.
