Collaboration with HBCUs, HSIs, Merck, Amgen & SAS Elevates Cancer Prevention, Diagnosis, Quality Treatment Addressing Disparities in Health
A paper outlining consensus disease definitions for neurological toxicities in cancer patients undergoing immune checkpoint inhibitor treatment was published this week in the Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer (JITC) by a team of physicians at 16 institutions. Neurologists and oncologists at Massachusetts General Hospital with support from scientists at Project Data Sphere® led the team to deliver the first consensus-based definitions of disease and severity criteria for any immune-related toxicity.
Project Data Sphere’s open access data platform has achieved a major milestone: Boosting the impact of oncology research by contributing to publication of more than 100 peer-reviewed articles that impact research and clinical practice.
