Infusion reactions are well-known in cancer treatment, occurring with both cytotoxic and biologic agents. The five articles presented in this supplement to ONCOLOGY cover a wide range of topics related to antibody-induced infusion reactions: immunologic mechanisms and risk factors; a focus on anaphylaxis; US and EU perspectives on the state of clinical trials; a health economic analysis of the burden on patients, caregivers, and providers; and a nursing perspective on infusion reaction management.
