Paolo Tarantino: The 5 S rules help memorizing a simple framework to manage ILD

Paolo Tarantino shared on LinkedIn:

T-DXd is rapidly expanding in indications, from HER2+, to HER2-low, and most recently to HER2-ultralow breast cancer.

At present, most patients with metastatic breast cancer can be considered eligible for the drug.

This calls for a concomitant expansion in our efforts to mitigate its side effects: particularly ILD, which can prove life threatening.

The 5 S rules help memorizing a simple framework to manage ILD:

Screen patients for lung comorbidities, Scan frequently (CT chest every 6-12 weeks), be Synergistic with all the multidisciplinary care team, Suspend T-DXd if ILD is suspected, use Steroids early.”
