Certain organ toxicities can be severe and life-threatening. Therefore, it is crucial to recognize these disease entities early on to provide prompt and effective treatments to improve the quality of patient care, and enable the continuation of cancer therapy long-term. A clinical handbook with a particular focus in this field is lacking.
This handbook focuses on the comprehensive, systematic review of clinical aspects of immunotherapy-induced toxicities in 15 major organ systems. The organs covered include endocrine, eye, gut, heart, kidney, liver, lung, muscular-skeletal, neuro, pancreas and skin etc. A unique feature about this book is the inclusion of perspectives from Anesthesiology, Infectious Disease, and Pathology besides specific organ toxicity management.
The contributors are a group of experts offering routine clinical care to patients with most complex and refractory toxicity conditions, conducting pioneering research, and providing the guidance for the clinical practice to the peers and trainees in the field. The topics of each chapter include incidence, clinical presentations, evaluation, management, and long term follow up of each disease entity. There is also a simplified management algorithm or table illustrated in each chapter as well as audio PowerPoint slide deck to provide straightforward general instruction on the evaluation and treatment.
