But I Don't Dispense Those! A Community Pharmacist's Guide to Immuno-Oncology Agents

The promise of the immune system in helping to treat cancer has finally become a reality in the past few years. The immune system is designed to differentiate between normal cells foreign cells. To do this, it uses “checkpoints” – molecules on certain immune cells that need to be activated (or inactivated) to start an immune response. Cancer cells often may look like normal cells and may evade the immune system recognition. An important molecule in this process is CTLA4 and thus a CT...
