Lung Cancer and Mesothelioma CPG Mini Module – Key Principles of Immune Related Adverse Events (irAEs)


Lung Cancer and Mesothelioma CPG Mini-Module – Key Principles of Immune Related Adverse Events (irAEs)


The SITC Cancer Immunotherapy Guidelines Webinars connect clinicians with leading experts in the field and provide education about the evidence- and consensus-based recommendations in the clinical practice guidelines. To complement the advanced live webinar series, three on-demand, mini modules will assist learners in applying lessons learned on specific topics within the use of immunotherapy in their own practices and locate additional resources to continue their education.   


In this mini module, Jyoti D. Patel, MD, of the Lurie Cancer Center, Northwestern University discusses the mechanisms and management of adverse events associated with immunotherapy for lung cancer and mesothelioma. Topics include the mechanisms and kinetics underlying irAEs, the importance of understanding patient baseline activities prior to immunotherapy, and the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE). This mini-module concludes with a discussion between Dr. Patel and Sarah B. Goldberg, MD, MPH, of Yale Cancer Center, on the timing of initiating immune checkpoint blockade after chemoradiation for lung cancer.
