AM2018 EDU27 Clinical Safety, Toxicity, and Efficacy of Immunotherapies in Combination with Radiation Therapy

This educational session will provide a comprehensive review of the safety, toxicity, and efficacy of currently available commercial immunotherapies combined with radiation therapy. The session will be limited to immunotherapies in clinical use and we will not discuss experimental drugs or mechanisms. We will review the known side effects of approved immunotherapies currently in clinical use. We will then review the published safety and toxicity data of these immunotherapies in combination with radiation therapy. We will then review the published efficacy of these immunotherapies in combination with radiation therapy. This session will be especially usefull for community and academic clinicians as radiation is frequently being utilized concurrently with immunotherapies in the pallaitive and definitive setting on and off clinical trials.

Target Audience

The meeting is designed to meet the interests of radiation oncologists, radiation oncology residents, medical oncologists and nurses.

Learning Objectives

  • Define and identify the side effect profile and presenting symptoms of toxicities from immunotherapies.
  • Identify the currently available safety and toxicity profile of radiation combined with immunotherapies.
