Description

Biological therapy for cancer is a type of treatment that uses the body's immune system to kill cancer cells and is used in the treatment of many cancer types to prevent or slow tumor growth and prevent the spread of cancer. Biological therapy for cancer often causes fewer toxic side effects than do other cancer treatments. For cancer patients, biological therapies may be used to treat the cancer itself or the side effects of other cancer treatments. This course provides a background in biologic therapies and their increasing role in cancer treatment. Biologic agents, the cancer types they are approved for use in, their mechanisms of action, and potential side effects are all discussed throughout the sections of the course.

Led by expert faculty, this course is broken down into four sections –

1) Principles of Biologic Therapy
2) Biologic Agents
3) Antibodies as Cancer Treatment
4) Case Studies.

The Case Studies section follows three patients being treated with biologic cancer therapies.

After participation in this course, learners will be better able to:Recognize the roles of biologic therapies in cancer treatment and supportive care;
  • Differentiate biologics from other forms of cancer therapy;
  • Classify biologics based on mechanism of action; and
  • Apply this knowledge to management of patients treated with biological cancer therapies.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This course expires on August 17, 2019. Participants must complete all necessary course components by this date.
