POLE ultra-mutated endometrial cancer and immunotherapy

This is the third time I am trying to post this message. It seems if I add a hyperlink the post is deleted.  

In addition to tumours that have Micro Satellite Instability, it seems tumours that have the POLE exonuclease domain mutations are also good candidates for immunotherapy. If the genomic profiling of your tumour indicated the POLE mutation and you are experiencing a recurrence please check with your doctor to see if immunotherapy could be an option for you.

Here are a few papers that you might find interesting:
