One of the greatest advances in oncology over the past decade has been the recognition of cell surface proteins that are shown to play a key role in tumor immunogenicity; mechanisms in which tumors are able to avoid immune surveillance and destruction. Although immunotherapy is a relatively new approach to anti-cancer treatment, it is being utilized across multiple tumor types. This program highlights the science behind immunotherapy, immune-related adverse side effects (irAEs), monitoring and managing irAEs, the role of biomarkers, and differentiating pseudo-progression from actual disease progression.
