Summary of "The impact of body composition parameters on severe toxicity of nivolumab."

The occurrence of severe, acute limiting toxicity in patients receiving anti-programmed cell death receptor-1 monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, is largely unpredictable. Sarcopenia was found to be associated with anti-cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated protein 4 acute toxicity. We explore the clinical and pharmacological parameters influencing nivolumab toxicity, including body composition.
