Immunotherapy Special Collection
Toxicity of radiation and immunotherapy combinationsAlthough immunotherapy is a rapidly emerging modality for cancer care, there have been multiple reports of fatal toxicities. There have also been cases of treatment-related deaths with combined non-immunotherapeutic biologic compounds with radiation therapy. Thus, provision of summative information appraising the safety of combinatorial immunotherapy and radiation therapy (iRT) is imperative. Because this has not been well characterized, this review summarizes the available evidence to date.
