Summary of "A comparative study of longitudinal toxicities of cytotoxic drugs, molecularly targeted agents, immunomodulatory drugs, and cancer vaccines."

Little is known about the toxicity of various therapeutics for cancer over time because randomized controlled clinical trials that compare several treatments are limited. In this study, we focused on the toxicities most frequently discussed, which are investigations (lab abnormalities), gastrointestinal disorders, skin and subcutaneous tissue disorders, and cardiac disorders, and compared their longitudinal toxicity data among four types of cancer therapeutics. In total, 28,235 patients who were enrolled into 772 early phase trials to evaluate the monotherapies of cytotoxic drugs, molecularly targeted agents, immunomodulatory drugs, or cancer vaccines were evaluated. For each toxicity, we compared their grade prevalence, mean grade at each cycle, and time to toxicity occurrence and identified the potential underlying similarities and differences of longitudinal toxicities among the four cancer treatment types. Our results will further help in understanding the profile of cancer therapeutic toxicities and their impact on oncology treatment in practice. This article is protected by copyright.

Radiotherapy where cytotoxic radionuclides are linked to antibodies in order to deliver toxins directly to tumor targets. Therapy with targeted radiation rather than antibody-targeted toxins (IMMUNOTOXINS) has the advantage that adjacent tumor cells, which lack the appropriate antigenic determinants, can be destroyed by radiation cross-fire. Radioimmunotherapy is sometimes called targeted radiotherapy, but this latter term can also refer to radionuclides linked to non-immune molecules (see RADIOTHERAPY).
