Recent advances in immunotherapy have revolutionized treatment delivery and toxicity management in cancer care. Oncology nurses are at the forefront of prevention and management of immune-mediated toxicities and leaders in patient education in this rapidly evolving field. Guide to Cancer Immunotherapy was developed by an expert collection of healthcare professionals and nursing leaders to provide nurses with in-depth knowledge on the principles of immunology, cancer and the immune system, and the history of immunotherapy. This foundational work is supported with information on the development of new agents and classes of agents, active immunization, passive/adoptive immunotherapy, combination therapies, biomarkers, and many other topics. As more is discovered about these powerful treatments, this comprehensive reference will serve as a lasting tool for the management of toxicities and the treatment of additional malignancies.
