The Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) has established a Gastrointestinal Cancer Immunotherapy Guidelines Expert Panel to develop a new clinical practice guideline (CPG) to assist clinicians in navigating the rapidly evolving immunotherapeutic landscape.
The recommendations in this guideline will provide a valuable clinical decision-making tool to help guide oncologists and other advanced practice providers with selection of appropriate immunotherapeutic regimens, diagnostics and biomarker testing, and patient quality of life considerations. SITC's Cancer Immunotherapy Guidelines program is a collection of CPGs developed by multi-disciplinary panels of experts who draw from their own practical experience as well as evidence in the published literature and clinical trial data to develop evidence- and consensus-based recommendations. SITC uses as a model the Institute of Medicine's 2011 "Standards for Developing Trustworthy Clinical Practice Guidelines" to ensure the recommendations are unbiased, transparent, and balanced. As the gastrointestinal cancer guideline nears publication, a call for public comment will be issued. At that time, access to the draft manuscript will become available through the Call for Comment page on the SITC website.
