Immunotherapy is a cancer treatment that works by boosting the body’s immune system. Some patients achieve full remission, meaning all signs of their cancer have disappeared. However, these patients can potentially have serious side effects called immunerelated adverse events (inAEs), which can affect almost any organ. Join Dr. Kerry Reynolds as she provides an immunotherapy overview. She will also discuss the urgent need to understand how and why immune-related adverse events occur and how to best manage them.
Dr. Reynolds will be joined by Regina Santamarina, a family member of a patient with first-hand experience of these conditions. We are so grateful to her for giving her unique and personal perspective.
