    Hyperprogression after immunotherapy in HNC: literature review and our experience

    Nerina Denaro

    Checkpoint inhibitors demonstrate salutary anticancer effects, including long-term remissions. PD-L1 expression/amplification, high mutational burden, and mismatch repair deficiency correlate with response. Champiat et al for the first time described a small subset of patients that could actually have tumor growth accelerated when given PD1/PDL1-targeting agents [1].

    Hyperprogression may be defined as accelerated progression outpaces the expected rate of growth induced by the therapies.

    Champiat suggests that a subset of patients with disease progression have a course that is more deleterious than they might have had with other therapies, or even in the absence of therapy.
