Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Almost all systemic agents used in cancer therapy can cause infusion-related reactions. Hypersensitivity or infusion reactions to platinum compounds are acquired, whereas reactions to taxanes and monoclonal antibodies usually occur during the first few minutes of the first infusion. By understanding the symptoms and treatment of infusion reactions, healthcare team members can provide timely and appropriate treatment and positively impact patient care.
