    Pharmacovigilance is similar to a detective story. We are trying to determine whether the adverse event is due to a drug, the diseases the patient is being treated for or something intrinsic to the patient. To do this we need an understanding of both the drug mechanisms of action and the context in which drug is used. New classes of treatments are being developed all the time with increasingly complex and specific mechanisms. This session will provide an overview of three emerging therapies from a clinical point of view: CAR-T cells, monoclonal antibodies – targeted therapies and checkpoint inhibitors – and gene therapy.
