    If they are part of a chemotherapy treatment we only use the regular protocol consent.  If they are given for non oncology use say renal or vascular patients we ask the providers to get a consent

    Hello!

    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!
