Clinical Care Toolkit
A better understanding of how the adaptive immune system is regulated has led to the development of novel immunotherapeutic agents and moved immunotherapy to the forefront of cancer treatment. As immunotherapies continue to change treatment paradigms at a rapid pace, it is essential that oncologists and other clinicians are able to effectively incorporate these agents into practice to maximize patient outcomes. The management of immune-related adverse events (irAEs) associated with immunotherapies differs significantly from the side effects of traditional chemotherapy and clinicians must be able to anticipate and treat potential irAEs. In this Clinical Care Toolkit, you will find links and information about immune system regulation, the mechanism of action of immune checkpoint inhibitors, and strategies for managing possible adverse events with these agents.
