Optimizing Immunotherapy Combinations Against Hepatocellular Carcinoma The immunotherapy combination of atezolizumab–bevacizumab (AtezoBev) has been recently approved as first-line therapy in unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). As such, combinatorial immunotherapy has proven to be a promising approach towards treating HCC. However, the vast majority of HCC patients still do not benefit from AtezoBev with only 33.2% overall response (NEJM 2020). We have developed a complex system analytics platform that can identify optimal drug combinations in drug-resistant cancers and primary patient samples (Sci Trans Med 2018, Blood Cancer J 2020, JECCR 2022). By applying this platform towards HCC patient-derived avatars, we seek to develop optimized immunotherapy combinations as well as understand the molecular mechanisms that drive sensitivity and resistance to these combinations compared to AtezoBev in specific HCC subtypes.
