    • Overview

      The presentation will review the approved immunotherapy agents, their mechanism of action and how they could lead to immune related toxicities. We will also review treatment guidelines and algorithms that are used at BWH/DFCI to treat those toxicities and our approach to triage patients with immune related toxicity to the ITOX service. We will highlight the important role that pharmacists play in the development and implementation of the ITOX program and discuss future directions.
