This publication demonstrates a critical understanding of the possibilities and disadvantages of precision oncology, represents a transitional stage in the current understanding of the place of immunotherapy in the treatment of disseminated patients, updates the place of standard chemotherapy in the era of immunotherapy and targeted therapy, concretizes the possibility of improving the results of treatment of common and metastatic forms of malignancies.
