Introduction: ICI can cause potentially life-threatening adverse events (AE) and their risk of cardiotoxicity has been poorly investigated. It is also unknown whether ICI combinations increases cardiotoxicity compared to single ICI. We aimed to assess the cardiotoxicity rate of ICI compared to other cancer treatments (primary objective) and of dual-agent ICI (immunotherapy combinations) compared to single-agent ICI (secondary objective).

Introduction/aim: The combination of CDK4-6i and endocrine therapy (ET) is standard-of- care for pts with HR+/HER2- advanced breast cancer. However, studies evaluating adjuvant CDK4-6i provided contradictory results thus far. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess if the addition of CDK4-6i to adjuvant ET impacts on survival’s outcomes and safety of pts with HR+/HER2- EBC.
