The Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) Cancer Immunotherapy Guidelines are a collection of consensus statements developed by experts in the treatment of specific types of cancer. Each consensus statement provides key indicators to help practicing oncologists determine when and how to best use immunotherapy to treat their patients.
These systematically developed recommendations promote enhanced clinical decisions concerning patient selection, toxicity management, clinical endpoints, and the sequencing or combination of therapies. Prior to publication of each Guideline, a Call for Comment phase is opened available only for SITC members to review a draft copy of the Guideline and provide feedback in the goal of further improving the draft.

In response to the ever-growing demand for expert advice on the optimal use of immunotherapy treatments, our Cancer Immunotherapy Guidelines Task Forces have developed consensus statements for genitourinary malignancies (renal, prostate and bladder carcinoma) and hematologic malignancies (multiple myeloma, lymphoma and acute leukemia).
An update of the melanoma consensus statement and new guidelines for lung cancer are also underway. These disease-specific Cancer Immunotherapy Guidelines offer a vital resource for the practicing oncology community.

SITC follows the 2011 Institute of Medicine’s “Standards for Developing Trustworthy Clinical Practice Guidelines” to assure a fair, transparent and balanced process for creating the consensus statement; therefore, each Cancer Immunotherapy Guidelines Task Force comprises a comprehensive mix of academic physicians and researchers,nurses, patients, and patient advocates invited from a diversity of institutions across the United States.
Each expert Task Force addresses knowledge gaps in our understanding of immunotherapy treatments for their disease specialty, and then develops evidence-based recommendations by recording consensus opinions of the Task Force and documenting alternative opinions when they occur.
