Long-term toxicities and quality of life of cancer survivors treated with immunotherapy


Immunotherapies, such as immune checkpoint inhibitors, have greatly improved survival for many cancers and are now approved for over half of all cancer patients. However, many patients receiving immunotherapy experience Grade 3 and 4 toxicities, termed immune-related adverse events (IRAEs) which cause frequent hospitalizations, emergency department visits, impaired health-related quality of life (QOL) and often discontinuation of therapy. While clinical trials of immunotherapeutic drugs have reported on IRAEs over short time-periods, the real-life and long-term frequencies of and experiences with IRAEs outside of clinical trials, and the general experience of taking immunotherapies long-term remain unknown. The goal of this protocol is to build a prospective cohort study of cancer survivors who receive immunotherapies.
