Great question Lisa! Our approach to this issue follows Krista’s guidelines with each particular patient’s situation evaluated independently weighing the risks and benefits. Several years ago we would have avoided I/O therapy in patients with autoimmune conditions, but that practice has now changed as more information has come out showing that it can be offered to some patients.
