Igor Puzanov, MD, MSCI, FACP, is an expert in the management of immunotherapy toxicities. In this video presentation, he shares vital information for physicians who care for patients undergoing immunotherapy treatment. Although one of the most promising new developments in cancer care, immunotherapies also present a unique set of side effects because of their impact on healthy cells.

Dr. Puzanov is the co-author on the first consensus recommendations on recognition and clinical management of immune-related side-effects from the Society for Immunotherapy in Cancer (SITC) and also senior author on the SITC Guide to Managing Immunotherapy Toxicity.
