Erika Hamilton: Not all AEs are equal…

Erika Hamilton shared a post by Hope Rugo on X/Twitter:

“Not all AEs are equal – neutropenia without increased infection rate or asymptomatic bradycardia may not matter much. Side effects like eye toxicity, stomatitis, etc can be much more disruptive. Just reporting rates of “G3 AEs” doesn’t tell the whole story in trials.”

Quoting Hope Rugo’s post:

“Nice discussion about impact of eye toxicity by H. Bonnefois. Really important toxicity of emerging targeted agents with huge patient impact. We are eval preventive strategies in I-SPY 2.”
