    We do not require separate consents unless part of a study

    I am wondering if your institution requires consents for the administration of biotherapy agents such as Rituximab, Dasatinib, etc.?  I know for chemotherapy agents we absolutely have consent but a lot of questions have come up recently regarding the biotherapy monoclonal antibodies, tyrosine kinase inhibitors, etc. Any advice or suggestions would be great!

    Thank you for your time!
