Oncology has been rapidly evolving over the past decade with tremendous therapeutic development. Engineered cell therapies such as chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T cells are increasingly used in daily practice, and provided a paradigm change especially for hematological malignancies. Their development is a scientific and technological achievement, but their toxicities can be life-threatening. As their utilization expands, better understanding of pathophysiology leads to better management. In this article we present a general overview of cell-therapy toxicities and their management.
