The purpose of this study is to monitor T cell responses from patients with advanced cancer who are being treated with an anti-PD (programmed death)-1 monoclonal antibody, and compare them with clinical outcomes.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.
- Are 18 years of age or older.
- Have histologic evidence of locally or regionally advanced or stage IV malignancy.
- Are considered appropriate for starting therapy with anti-PD-1/anti-PD-L1 monoclonal antibody by their treating physician (prior therapy with ICI is allowed).
- Have an understanding of the protocol and its requirements, risks, and discomforts.
- Are willing to undergo peripheral blood collection at the time points mentioned in the protocol.
- Are able and willing to sign an informed consent.
- Patients under 18 years of age.
- Inability of the patient to understand the informed consent or be compliant with the protocol.
