Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) clinical practice guideline on immune effector cell-related adverse events

Immune effector cell (IEC) therapies offer durable and sustained remissions in significant numbers of patients with hematological cancers. While these unique immunotherapies have improved outcomes for pediatric and adult patients in a number of disease states, as ‘living drugs,’ their toxicity...

Clinicopathological characteristics and management of colitis with anti-PD1 immunotherapy alone or in combination with ipilimumab

Colitis is one of the common immune-related adverse events that leads to morbidity and treatment discontinuation of immunotherapy. The clinical presentation, endoscopic and histopathological features and best management of this toxicity are not well defined. The authors conclude that clinically...

Prognostic value of HLA-I homozygosity in patients with non-small cell lung cancer treated with single agent immunotherapy

The authors have aimed to assess the impact of genomic human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-I/II homozygosity on the survival benefit of patients with unresectable locally advanced, metastatic non-small lung cancer treated by single-agent programmed cell death protein-1/programmed death ligand 1 (PD1...

Investigation of the prognostic value of CD4 T cell subsets expanded from tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes of colorectal cancer liver metastases

The positive role of CD8+ tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) in patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) has been well described but the prognostic value of CD4 T cell subsets remained to be investigated. In this study, the authors expanded TIL from surgically resected liver metastases of...

Early changes in immune cell subsets with corticosteroids in patients with solid tumors: implications for COVID-19 management

The risk–benefit calculation for corticosteroid administration in the management of COVID-19 is complex and urgently requires data to inform the decision. The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a marker of systemic inflammation associated with poor prognosis in both COVID-19 and cancer....

Efficacy and immune-related adverse event associations in avelumab-treated patients

Adverse events (AEs) of special interest that arise during treatment with immune checkpoint inhibitors, including immune-related AEs (irAEs), have been reported to be associated with improved clinical outcomes. The authors analyzed patients treated with avelumab from the JAVELIN Solid Tumor and...

Baseline prognostic nutritional index and changes in pretreatment body mass index associate with immunotherapy response in patients with advanced cancer

Recent research suggests that baseline body mass index (BMI) is associated with response to immunotherapy. In this study, the authors tested the hypothesis that worsening nutritional status prior to the start of immunotherapy, rather than baseline BMI, negatively impacts immunotherapy response....
