Locally advanced rectal cancer usually receives a three-part treatment: chemotherapy followed by radiotherapy and then surgery.

In a small-cohort study presented at this year’s ASCO conference researchers used a PD-1 inhibitor — dostarlimab — every three weeks for 6 months against the disease. All patients had mismatch repair deficient tumors. No other treatments were needed however, since the 12 patients all attained complete response if they completed the regimen.
