our different patterns after week 12 of treatment.

"Anti-CTLA-4 antibodies have shown patterns of anti-tumor response that are different from responses to conventional chemotherapy," explained Weber. "Because responses can occur slowly, or be mixed, 12 weeks has been the time to first evaluation with ipilimumab."

Weber and his colleagues also reviewed the new set of response criteria that have been created immune related response criteria or irRC to evaluate disease progression and benefit with immune checkpoint inhibitors like ipilimumab. The irRC criteria have been compared with modified WHO criteria in studies of patients receiving ipilimumab and can provide valuable information to oncologists as to when to stop treatment with ipilimumab, and when to continue.

"In this study, we provide a detailed description of irAEs and recommendations for practicing oncologists who are managing them along with the unusual kinetics of response associated with ipilimumab therapy," said Weber.
